Learn & Lead: Marijuana & Other Drugs

Substance use by teens can have a lifetime impact on their health and well-being. Trends in substance use change over time and students are best equipped to understand which substances are of greatest concern among their peers. We engage students to identify concerns in their school and community, then support them as they create and implement projects to create positive change in ways that are personal to them. Check out some of the great projects related to marijuana and other drugs below.
