The King County Youth Marijuana Prevention and Education Program is a regional effort led by Public Health - Seattle & King County, the King County Behavioral Health and Recovery Division (BHRD) and Seattle Children's Hospital, with funding support from the Washington State Department of Health.

This co-leadership structure was formed to provide a wide array of expertise as it relates to youth marijuana and vaping prevention. We look forward to working with community partners on this initiative to reduce underage marijuana and vaping initiation and use in King County.
