Who Are We

Group photo of the entire RAM coalition

Rethinking Access to Marijuana (RAM) is a diverse group of community-based organizations working together to educate people about the harms of youth marijuana use. We are committed to helping LA County residents take action in their communities to minimize youth exposure to marijuana.

​We focus solely on youth marijuana use and do not support or oppose any specific legislation. Young people are much more vulnerable to marijuana’s negative effects on verbal, cognitive, and attention ability.1

Our Mission

To prevent access and availability that leads to use of marijuana products by youth in Los Angeles County.

Our Vision

Flourishing youth and communities free from marijuana-related harms.
