Not Pot Day
The San Juan Island Prevention Coalition shares this notice with you…
Recently, Governor Jay Inslee proclaimed April 20th to be Talk to Your Kids about NOT using Marijuana Day, as you may know, the pro-pot culture has often referred to 4.20 as “Weed Day”.
We would like to change that conversation with our young people and give them the tools and knowledge to help them be their best, now and for the years to come.
A few members of H.O.T.S. (Helping Out Teens Society) and Rock Solid Youth Group with the San Juan Island Prevention Coalition stepped up to ask our local government officials to also recognize 4.20 in the Town of Friday Harbor and San Juan County to be “Talk to Your Kids about NOT Using Marijuana” Day, too.
Arlo Harold, Anne Marie Ryan and Zach Fincher met with our community leaders and they were uplifted by the support they received from Mayor Lacher and County Council members Bob Jarman, Jamie Stephens and Rick Hughes.
We are encouraged by their support and we hope others will take the time to talk to the youth in their circle of influence about underage marijuana use.
StartTalkingNow.org is a helpful resource, too.
