“ When I was a kid…” doesn’t really work when talking with your kids about cannabis today. It’s a whole new ballgame.
Cannabis — legal or otherwise — is a hot topic. Parents who provide their kids with balanced information about the effects associated with cannabis (often called pot) can help them make informed decisions. It’s more important than ever for parents to address this issue early and often – to help prevent underage use and protect their kids’ health and development. It’s important to understand that expressing curiosity does not always result in experimentation. It’s natural for youth to feel curious and have questions about cannabis use.
