OUR COMMUNITY
What You Need to Know About Teen Vaping & Marijuana Use
Not sure what to think about vaping? Questioning if Marijuana is really all that bad? Wondering what to say to your teens about vaping and marijuana use?

Being a teen today is not like being a teen in the 90's. Drugs are different. Exposure is different. Access is different. Even if you navigated your teen years like a pro, you might benefit from facts about the current scene so you can help your teen make choices that are best for them.

Join us for a LIVE Parent Webinar on February 23rd at 7pm. Speaker Ray Lozano provides understandable, non-judgmental, non-biased facts about youth vaping, the addictive nature of marijuana and nicotine, and why combining the two can have detrimental effects. Parents will come away with a better understanding of vaping and how to talk to their kids about drug use.

The webinar is FREE and attendees will be entered to win one of four $25 Amazon gift cards. This program is sponsored by the Wisconsin Elks Drug Awareness Program and the Jefferson County Drug Free Coalition.

Follow the link to access the webinar link.
