Washington launches campaign to prevent youth marijuana use | NWCN.com

WASHINGTON STATE – The State Department of Health announced a new statewide prevention campaign on Thursday to educate 12 to 17-year-olds about the risks and consequences of marijuana use.

The campaign is being called the “Listen2YourSelfie” campaign. Officials said the campaign taps into the popular activity of taking “selfies” to demonstrate health risks posed by using marijuana while brains are still developing, as well as how using marijuana can derail personal goals and opportunities.

“We’re committed to keeping all of our young people safe and healthy,” said Secretary of Health John Wiesman. “One way to help create the healthiest next generation is to educate about the risks of marijuana and empower our youth to make healthy choices.”

The campaign features youth putting school, sports, extracurricular activities, friends and family ahead of marijuana. It empowers them to “Remember what’s important. Forget marijuana.”
