From Drug-Free Kids Canada
“Cannabis—legal or otherwise—is a hot topic. Parents who provide their kids with balanced information about the effects associated with cannabis (often called marijuana) can help them make informed decisions. It’s more important than ever for parents to protect their kids’ health and development by addressing this issue early and often.
That’s why we created this talk kit. We want to help families navigate through a changing cannabis landscape—one that includes new policies like legalization and regulation, as well as new products, like “shatter” and “edible” candies and cookies.
Here, you’ll learn how to set the stage to have an open dialogue with your teen—about any issue, but cannabis in particular. Your teens are likely asking you some tough questions and challenging you on the topic of cannabis. We’ve worked with top experts in health and parenting to help you talk with your teen.
Believe it or not, you are one of the most powerful influences in your child’s life. More than friends. More than TV. More than celebrities.
We know you have questions, and we’re here to help.”
