Initiative 502 passed and recreational marijuana is now legal in Washington State. With that, comes the many worries about youth risk and prevention within the state and locally.
The Kittitas County Community Network and Coalition hosted the I-502 Community Safety forum on August 7th at Ellensburg City Hall. One of the primary speakers was Derek Franklin, the Project Director of the Mercer Island Communities that Care Coalition. I also spoke with Nora Ludlow, a mother and one of the community members attending the forum.
