The No More Mojo video was produced to address the growing problem with synthetic marijuana use among youth in Louisiana. This hip-hop song and video communicates the danger of using synthetic marijuana, and the artist performed this song at several schools in the CAHS service area, helping youth understand all of the serious dangers associated with synthetic marijuana use.
