Additionally, prevention efforts are geared towards helping the campus community have an accurate understanding of the prevalence and recognizing that most Loggers choose not to use marijuana.

Legalizing marijuana in Washington State and other parts of the country have contributed to a decrease in the perception of risk related to using this drug. Marijuana is an addictive substance.
