When cannabis was legalized for adult use in 2012 by voters (Initiative 502), the law included funding for a website that would have science-based information for the public. The website, LearnAboutCannabisWA, offers information on a variety of topics. These include:

  • Health effects
  • Products and modes of use
  • Addiction to cannabis
  • Legal and safety issues
  • Data and surveys
  • Specific populations
  • Other drugs and cannabis

There are also separate sections designed for parents and teens. A consumer FAQ section provides information for commonly asked questions. For those who prefer watching a video rather than reading, videos are also available.

Resources for quitting or cutting back cannabis use and links to help lines are available on this page.
