In October of 2012, the BestCare Treatment Services Prevention staff and the Jefferson County Prevention Task Force hosted an informative statewide Marijuana Summit in partnership with Deschutes and Crook county in Madras, Oregon. The information learned became a catalyst for prevention staff and community coalitions in Central Oregon to further educate the public about the facts of marijuana. This collaboration resulted in the development of a Marijuana Summit Fact Summary. The summary was disseminated to community partners as well as all State Senators and Representatives in Oregon. Also developed were radio and print ads.
The goal of this work is to provide factual information so that citizens can make informed health-related decisions based on credible data.
