Many people do not know the important research on the connection between youth marijuana use and suicidality! Walk with us around the U.S. to raise awareness!
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2022 - CHOOSE YOUR OWN TIME!
Looking for a great way to prevent youth marijuana use and suicide? Join the Johnny's Ambassadors annual #StopDabbing walk! Our goal is to form 100+ Johnny’s Ambassadors teams around the U.S. during Suicide Prevention month! Teams are led by affected loved ones, coalitions, community groups, or concerned individuals just like you.
You can walk with your family and friends in your own neighborhood. Or you can join a larger city team if there's one nearby. Or start a team yourself named after your coalition, business, or a loved one. Or you can simply walk virtually and raise funds for Johnny's Ambassadors.
Who Are Johnny’s Ambassadors? Johnny’s Ambassadors is a non-partisan, non-profit, grass-roots alliance of individuals and organizations around the globe concerned about the harms of youth marijuana use. We are parents, coalitions, impacted family members, healthcare professionals, teachers, and nonprofits who seek to reduce youth marijuana use through education, prevention, and awareness. We use evidence-based, scientific research and experts to educate about the dangerous impacts of today’s high-THC marijuana on youth.
Why Are We Walking? We are all walking to educate parents, teens, and communities about the dangers of today's high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide. We walk to show our passion to protect youth from the harms of marijuana!
Our Vision: To dramatically decrease the incidence of adolescent marijuana and substance abuse, mental illness, and suicide, to allow our youth to live productive, happy lives.
This event is Johnny's Ambassadors main fundraiser for the year to cover our operational expenses! Please help us raise funds to provide online teen marijuana training to thousands of teens who may not understand the harms of marijuana to their minds and lives.
Johnny's Ambassadors was founded by Laura and John Stack to honor the life of their beloved 19-year-old son, Johnny Kenneth Stack, who died by suicide on November 20, 2019 from outcomes related to marijuana-related psychosis.
We are forming teams around the world to raise awareness and educate parents and teens about the risks of today's high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide.
Johnny's Ambassadors take ACTION to spread the word about the harms of marijuana on youth. Thank you for being one of Johnny's Ambassadors!
