Not Everyone is doing it.
While it might seem like most teens and young adults use marijuana, that’s not the case.

Reach out to your friends at UYLC’s Youth Advisory Board if you have more questions, would like ideas for saying “no” when you feel pressured, and/or want to hang out with people who have fun without using marijuana.
