Thanks for posting this Lena! With reductions in many services, I expect competition for these funds will be pretty intense!

Mendocino County Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) are partnering with First 5 and others to educate their Board of Supervisors- specifically asking for “20 by 2020”. Meaning 20% of the MJ revenue will be set aside to support children by the year 2020. Their talking points and community stories are well organized and powerful. Karen

@Allen K. Nishikawa Oh, indeed! The language in the initiative is pretty vague in terms of what types of programs and interventions are eligible for the YEPT fund, but it is clear that the funds are not to be used to supplant existing funding sources. That's not to say that legislators won't attempt and end-run.

@Karen Clemmer (ACEs Connection Staff) Thank you for this tip! It's definitely worth looking into Mendocino's efforts. Is 20% set-aside to come from local cannabis tax revenue, or from the Prop. 64 youth education, prevention and treatment fund?

Prop. 64 Stakeholder Group: Prioritize Trauma-Informed Approach to Youth Substance Use Education, Prevention and Treatment

Lena Hoffman ·
In November 2016, California voters legalized adult use and sales of cannabis, and authorized state excise taxes that are estimated to generate up to $1 billion in revenue for regulation, research, public safety, prevention and treatment. A group of stakeholders representing youth-serving organizations and agencies across the state has issued recommendations for use of the tax revenue allocated to youth substance use education, prevention and treatment that emphasize a trauma-informed approach.
