Creating Environments Free
of Substance Use

Preventing Youth Marijuana Use

Each year our youth work on projects like to provide the public with facts on underage marijuana use. 

The following 30-second Public Service Announcements (PSAs below) feature our local youth educating about the high levels of THC (main chemical in marijuana that causes the high) and the many changes in the makeup of current marijuana. This media campaign was shared on TV, radio, social media, billboards, banners, print ads, and in movie theaters. 

Holiday mechanical pencils with a message of “He sees you when you’re smoking” were given out to all high school students in our three counties.

Each fall wristband bracelets are made with a youth led message.  This year, the messages that were shared on them were “SAY BYE TO GETTING HIGH” and “THE BEST ME IS DRUG FREE”.  These are very popular among the youth and are worn on a daily basis to spread awareness and empower each other to live substance free lifestyles.
