POLACCA, Ariz. - On Nov. 4 the Hopi Alliance Against Substance Abuse (HAASA) held its monthly meeting to discuss drug and alcohol concerns on the Hopi Reservation. HAASA is a grassroots community organization that was started to address substance abuse issues in the Hopi community. One of its objectives was to change Ordinance 21, which is Hopi law to include drug and alcohol as infractions of the law.
