Start Talking Now

Parents are the No. 1 influence on whether teens choose to use alcohol or marijuana

Underage consumption of alcohol and marijuana is a top health concern in Washington. The WSLCB Education section features information about what parents, the community and schools can do to reduce underage use. The section also offers facts about alcohol and marijuana, information about the laws regulating these substances, and more.

'Start Talking Before They Start Drinking'

The WSLCB and its Washington Healthy Youth Coalition partners are encouraging parents/caregivers and other adult influencers to talk to kids about not using alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. Please go to to get information, tips, and resources. 
The WSLCB also has posters available that encourage parents to talk to their teens about underage drinking, using the slogan "Start Talking Before They Start Drinking." 
If you would like to order copies from the poster series to display in your office or at your event, please send us an email
