Johnny Stack died by suicide on November 20, 2019, after becoming psychotic from dabbing high-potency marijuana concentrates. Johnny's Ambassadors nonprofit was formed to educate parents and teens about the dangers of today's high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide.
Three days before he died, Johnny issued his warning to his parents, "Marijuana ruined my mind and my life." Johnny's Ambassadors continue to share his warning to prevent youth marijuana use and keep them from following Johnny's path.
