Our Tobacco, Marijuana, and Other Drugs (TMoD) workgroup supports strategies, promotions, partners, and programs that advance smoke-free living.

We’ve created fact sheet on marijuana edibles, which are currently available in medical marijuna stores. Many of these products appeal to youth and resemble candy and sodas. Currently, there are no regulations against this and no age restrictions for sale.  We’re asking the Board of Health – Seattle & King County to pass an immediate emergency ban on marijuana edibles that appeal to youth.
