In November 2013, City and County of Denver voters approved a 3.5% special sales tax on retail marijuana to support the city’s marijuana regulation, enforcement and education efforts. The City of Denver has initiated a creative campaign to educate its youth in a creative, effective and positive manner about marijuana. The campaign seeks not to scare youth, but rather to teach Denver’s youth about the city’s laws, about the potential harmful effects of youth marijuana use – both socially and physiologically – and to give youth a better overall understanding of marijuana as well as useful tools for avoiding it. This campaign is one part of that overall mission to decrease use among youth.
