Yakima Health District to host event on impact of youth cannabis use – Yakima Herald-Republic


“The Moving Beyond It’s Just Weed” event is part of the Yakima Health District’s early intervention work surrounding substance use.

Jason Kilmer, a University of Washington associate professor in psychiatry and behavioral sciences, will present information on evidence-based science related to student cannabis use.

Research shows that people who start using substances at an early age are more likely to develop addiction disorders as well as difficulty with problem solving, attention and memory, a news release from organizers said.

The event is from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Friday at the Educational Service District 105 office at 111 S. Second Ave. in Yakima. It is free for all ages to attend.
