Teens Are Under the Influence... of You! Every Conversation Counts

Washington State Department of Health has supplied ADAI Clearinghouse with four marijuana prevention posters that remind parents of their influence on their teens' decisions.

These posters direct parents to the website for more information.

Message 1: Teens are less likely to use marijuana when adults are involved in their lives.

Message 2: Before you can teach teens about the world, you need to get the facts. The same goes for marijuana use.

Message 3: Teens make better decisions about marijuana if they know adults will help them out of uncomfortable situations.

Message 4: Whether it's cleaning their room or using marijuana, teens need to know their family's rules and consequences.

These posters can be ordered from the ADAI Clearinghouse.
