Overview

The Dover Coalition for Youth has developed a comprehensive approach to reducing marijuana use that includes:

  • Increasing Awareness of the Harms: educating students and parents about the impact that marijuana use has on the body
  • Social Norming: making students aware that the majority of students do not use marijuana
  • Maintaining Laws: that keep marijuana illegal and a criminal offense. Decriminalizing marijuana send the wrong message to youth that using is not a big deal and that it is acceptable in small amounts
  • Education: about the dangers of marijuana use for adults and parents, as well as the youth, through classroom instruction, public presentations and community awareness projects
  • Reaching out to Youth: and making them true partners in the effort to get the message out to other youth and adults
