The non-profit Hawaiʻi Meth Project will unveil its third Maui installation of the “Not Even Once” Mural Project at Baldwin High School on Thursday, Feb. 26, as part of Meth Awareness Day.

A freshly painted mural by Oʻahu-based artist, East-3, was created with the “Not Even Once” meth prevention message in mind.

The mural project was launched to bring brilliantly painted anti-meth murals to schools across the state.
