Walla Walla County Department of Community Health has a contract with the Washington State Department of Health to coordinate the Youth Marijuana Prevention and Education Program (YMPEP) in the nine-county Greater Columbia Accountable Communities of Health region. Through the YMPEP we provide information and resources to reduce use and access to marijuana by youth ages 12-20. Below are resources for youth, parents, and community members to support informed decisions about marijuana use.
