The Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) Network has identified seven areas to focus the development of new resources and training for the prevention workforce across the country. One of those areas of focus is marijuana risk. The nation-wide PTTC Network Marijuana Risk Work Group was convened to develop and produce resources for the prevention field to use to support their efforts in implementing marijuana prevention and education. In October 2019, the Work Group was pleased to release the first set of resources in the Marijuana Prevention & Education Toolkit.
Established in 2018 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the purpose of the Prevention Technology Transfer Center (PTTC) Network is to improve implementation and delivery of effective substance abuse prevention interventions.
