CPHI: Reducing Underage Use of Cannabis

The San Diego County Cannabis Public Health Initiative (CPHI) works to reduce youth access to cannabis by increasing public awareness regarding the adverse effects resulting from youth cannabis use. Our efforts are aimed at providing the science behind youth cannabis use and its public health impacts. The CPHI partners with schools/districts, treatment centers, agencies serving unhoused youth, probation, public safety, community colleges and local universities. The Initiative additionally supports regional capacity building through the SAMSHA Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) Region-9 as an Advisory Board Member.
