  • Washington State Department of Health - Statewide Awareness & Education Campaign - Marijuana Prevention & Educ. Request For Quotations and Qualifications (RFQQ) - The purpose of this RFQQ is to provide media-based health communication, education, and advertising services for multiple statewide advertising campaigns. The primary objective of these media-based health communication, education and advertising efforts are to prevent and reduce underage cannabis/marijuana use (includes use of vaping devices). The Youth Cannabis and Commercial Tobacco Prevention Program (YCCTPP) media-based education and advertising campaigns will seek to provide medically and scientifically accurate information about the health and safety risks posed by cannabis/marijuana use and to increase public awareness of laws governing marijuana use in Washington State. The initial campaign objectives will target youth and young adults aged 12-20, their parents, and other influential adults in order to prevent underage cannabis/marijuana use and reduce current use by young people. Secondary goals may include raising awareness of the health and safety risks of retail cannabis/marijuana use among adults and implementing tailored strategies to audiences that suffer unique unintended consequences from cannabis/marijuana legalization.
