Campaign Preventing Use of Marijuana among Teens (12-17 years old) in LA County

Using peer-to-peer communications, videos, DJ influencers, experts respected by teens – Dr. Drew Pinksy – to create engaging content. Teens talk about why they choose not to use marijuana or what consequences come about from using it: not making a sports team, passing out in the classroom, getting in trouble. Campaign content was generated by young people who collaborated with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
