Publication Date: Nov 27, 2019

New England PTTC Director, Scott M. Gagnon, was recently interviewed for the Organizing For Change Podcast.  Organizing For Change, coordinated and hosted by Amanda Decker, provides content to help Substance Use Prevention Coordinators, equip coalitions, organizations, and individuals to bring change to their community.  The topic of November's podcast was marijuana prevention.

In this episode, Scott discusses the role of prevention in an increasingly changing, and sometimes confusing marijuana policy landscape.  Scott talks about how communities and coalitions can approach these challenges using prevention science. Also, Scott highlights how the Prevention Technology Transfer Centers can assist coalitions and prevention providers with their work.  Scott describes the new marijuana prevention education toolkit, created and just released by the PTTC Network's Marijuana Risk Work Group.
