WSU MAC Lab Media, Adolescents and Cannabis


Active projects

The team is currently working on a grant funded project in which they are conducting virtual interviews with young adults who have used cannabis prior to sex to talk about their media use, attitudes and behaviors. Following the interviews, the team plans to field a survey of young adults to further assess the relationships they identify in the qualitative data.

The team also is working on a project to examine adolescents perceptions of cannabis packaging appeals through a series of virtual focus groups. Adolescents will examine packaging and describe the appeals they note, identifying in particular to whom such packaging may appeal. Results will inform a quantitative survey of Washington state youth to examine the perceptions of appeals among a more representative sample.
