Telling the Truth About Marijuana.

Despite what you may have heard, marijuana is a harmful substance. Teens who use have lower grades, are less likely to graduate, and are more likely to be unemployed.

The Alliance for Marijuana Prevention (AMP) is focused on educating the community, parents, and teens about the effects of marijuana use. We are a collection of community leaders, law enforcement officials, parents, and educators who have banded together to make a positive impact on marijuana use in Muskegon County. By using the local data and getting the correct information into the hands of the community, we believe we can turn the tide of marijuana use in Muskegon County.

Our message is simple: marijuana is a dangerous drug.
