Let’s talk about the impacts of cannabis on youth and cannabis legalization. Canadian youth have the highest prevalence of past-year cannabis use in the developed world. Early onset and/or regular cannabis use can have negative effects on cognition and behaviour, and can lead to future substance use struggles and mental health concerns. During this presentation we will discuss the myths youth may hold about cannabis, what we know about cannabis, and outline issues related to legalization. Tools and resources will be shared to support your classroom and students.
