Marin Prevention Network

The Marin Prevention Network is a collaboration of community coalitions, organizations and individuals actively seeking to change norms, policies, and laws that affect the availability, promotion, sale, and use of alcohol and other drugs. Our hope and goal is to create a supportive and healthy environment for all youth in Marin County.

Our Initiatives

Take a look at a few of the countywide initiatives we are working on with our partners across Marin.

Social Host Ordinance

All cities in Marin, as well as Marin County itself, have adopted some form of “Social Host” Ordinance. Social Host Ordinances generally provide for a violation when there are “two or more minors at a place, residence or other private property”, and “alcoholic beverages, marijuana or other controlled substances are possessed or consumed by one or more of the minors”.
