Parents, need help having the drug talk? There's an app for that.

For more information on the Allegan County Methamphetamine Educational campaign click here.

The ever changing marijuana laws and legalization states have led to several misconceptions and myths as identified by youth.  We recently released a series of posts on the talk sooner app to address these myths.  Please see the attached document for a summary of those app posts.   

Check out this new resource from the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids: Marijuana Talk Kit; What you need to know to talk with your teen about marijuana.
