San Mateo County Public Opinion Survey on Marijuana

Hey folks!  San Mateo County wants to hear from you!  Please consider taking this survey, which takes about 5 minutes, to give your opinions and feedback on the topic of marijuana.

Here’s some additional information about the survey:

  • San Mateo County (SMC) wants to be proactive with the upcoming potential for CA voters to legalize recreational marijuana on the November ballot.
  • The purpose of the marijuana survey is to assess current public knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs about marijuana, for the purpose of evaluation and planning for future prevention programs and/or other county services.  The County hopes to collect at least 900 surveys from residents in the entire County through the various regional prevention partnerships that are implementing the surveys in their own communities.
  • SMC is also working closely with staff and members of the San Mateo County Tobacco Education Coalition (TEC).  This group has been around for about 17+ years, and has helped tremendously with advocacy and partnership with councilmembers to create and pass progressive tobacco policies throughout the county.  The hope is that TEC can share their knowledge and resources for tobacco prevention and apply it to marijuana prevention, especially in regards to reducing youth access, and holding merchants accountable for adhering to responsible selling practices.
  • Taking the survey is anonymous and confidential.  No personal information is collected, and no one will follow up with the person taking the survey.  SMC hopes that people will answer the survey honestly, so that better strategies and programs for marijuana prevention can be developed to meet the needs of communities.  There will be no retaliation or penalty from any San Mateo County agency or law enforcement for honest answers.
  • In North County, there are three links to take the survey, based on which city the participant lives in.  One link is for residents of SSF, Brisbane, or Millbrae.  Another link is for residents of Daly City or Colma.  The third link is for residents of Pacifica or San Bruno.  If someone wants to take the survey but does not live in any of the North County cities listed, they can choose any of those three links to take the survey, so long as they are a resident of San Mateo County.

NCPP Retail Signage Collaboration

The NCPP is collaborating with two prevention partnerships in the county (One East Palo Alto and Youth Leadership Institute) along with the San Mateo County Health System.
In an effort to reduce teen alcohol abuse, retail stores selling alcohol will be posting signs stating that alcohol can only be bought by persons 21 years old or over.
These signs will be translated into multiple languages, and in order to ensure the accuracy of these translations, we would much appreciate it if anyone speaking ‪‎Arabic‬, ‪‎Burmese‬, ‪‎Chinese‬,‪ Farsi‬, ‪Korean‬, ‪‎Portuguese‬, ‎Russian‬ , ‎Samoan‬, ‎Spanish‬ ‪,Tagalog‬ , Tongan‬, or ‎Vietnamese‬ reviews the messages for the retail signage campaign!
