Secure Your Cannabis Campaign


Most Washington and Cowlitz County teens are not using cannabis, yet 44% of Cowlitz County and 49% of Washington tenth graders in 2018 said cannabis was easy to get. To protect young minds you can know the Washington laws, start talking with youth about underage cannabis use and keep cannabis secure.

This campaign was developed to deliver prevention messaging and a call to action directly to cannabis consumers and is developed in partnership with prevention professionals, educators, health care providers and cannabis retailers.
