Cannabis [Decoded]

If you haven’t checked out San Mateo County’s new marijuana education initiative, led by and created for youth, be sure to head to today. The website features information for teens and parents that helps users “crack the code” and get the facts they need to make decisions about cannabis use. 
An accompanying Instagram account @Cannabis_Decoded shares what it looks like when San Mateo County youth forsake cannabis in pursuit of life’s “natural highs.”
