"Most Steer Clear" Campaign

The "Most Steer Clear" campaign was created to promote the fact that most young adults in King County make positive choices surrounding drug use. In fact, 77% don’t use marijuana regularly and 89% don’t drive under the influence of marijuana. This campaign focuses on using a positive norms approach to inspire youth and young adults to steer clear of Marijuana and other substances prior to driving, drinking alcohol, during pregnancy, or while experiencing mental health issues.
