The overall goal of YMPEP is to foster healthier communities and improve youth health outcomes.

  • Reduce favorable attitudes towards youth marijuana use.
  • Increase community awareness around the laws in Washington State and health impact of marijuana use.
  • Increase the number of venues, stores, and parks that implement policies and procedures that restrict use and availability of marijuana, e-cigarette, and vaping devices.
