    We protect youth from substance misuse.

    How healthy are the youth in your life?

    If youth use cannabis, alcohol, tobacco, vapor products or other drugs, it can harm their health and school performance, or prevent them from getting hired for a job. It also puts them at higher risk for addiction.

    Youth who steer clear of substance misuse experience better health. We can help.

    • Teach youth and adults about harm.
    • Change attitudes about use.
    • Reduce cannabis access.
