Reasons To Care About Marijuana Use

Reasons to Care about Marijuana Use:

  • Marijuana is addictive
  • Marijuana is against the law for those under 21
  • Marijuana gets in the way of saying YES to other exciting opportunities

The Good News!

Most high school students in Washington state do NOT use marijuana!

According to the 2018 (most recent) Washington State Healthy Youth Survey, 90% of 10th graders believed that their parents felt youth marijuana use was wrong.
