Marijuana Can't. You Can.

HOW TO USE THIS TOOLKIT

In October 2018, The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) launched the statewide cannabis prevention and education campaign, You Can, to educate youth about the health effects and consequences of using cannabis, provide healthy alternatives to using to deal with stress and boredom, and to let them know that when it comes to pursuing future dreams and goals, “Marijuana Can’t. You Can.”  

Results from the 2022 youth assessment found that the top prevention messages most compelling to youth are: cannabis’ impact on mental health, relationships, and brain development. The toolkit below has been updated with new materials that feature these key prevention messages and encourage healthy behaviors as an alternative to cannabis use.
