(This amendment provides $2.5 million the second year from the general fund to develop and engage in cannabis youth prevention programs. The key to successful prevention campaigns is ensuring that they are deployed well ahead of policy changes such as cannabis legalization. These funds will position CSBs to fully engage in this critical prevention effort.)
