Take Back 420: What Can You Do?

Every year on April 20th or 420, marijuana users and marijuana enthusiasts celebrate an unofficial marijuana holiday or sorts. In doing so, people celebrate and may use the drug on this day more than any others. Unfortunately for our youth, attention given to drugs in this way can send dangerous messages that encourage use and experimentation.

What can you do?
Create your own take back 420 initiative.  Instead of allowing marijuana enthusiasts to take all of the attention on this day; take the day back by creating events and activities that encourage positive behavior and spread alternative messages.
