Johnny's Ambassadors

Laura Stack’s 19-year-old son, Johnny, died by suicide on November 20, 2019, after using high-THC marijuana concentrates and experiencing a psychotic episode in their home state of Colorado. Soon afterward, Laura started a nonprofit to help educate parents and teens about the potential dangers of youth marijuana use. Before marijuana, Johnny was a computer whiz with a 4.0 GPA and a perfect math score on the SAT. Three days before his death, Johnny issued his own warning about how using marijuana had ruined his mind and his life. Through her upcoming presentation, Stack hopes to help teens understand how marijuana can harm them.
