Drug Aware cannabis prevention campaign for WA

Date posted: 17 August 2011

A new Western Australian state campaign is aimed at increasing awareness about the risks associated with cannabis use. ‘Cannabis messes with your mind' is the message behind the four-year campaign, which was developed in partnership with the WA Network of Alcohol and Drug Agencies. The message is aimed at parents and young people who use cannabis, and highlights the serious community misconceptions of cannabis being a harmless drug. The campaign uses in-venue, radio, outdoor, press, and online banner advertising, as well as radio advertisements designed to target Indigenous people.
