Practical Parenting: Marijuana - The facts, the risks and how to prevent use

You may have heard a variety of claims about marijuana in the media or in everyday conversation. As a parent, making sense of conflicting messages related to marijuana can be confusing. Accurate and balanced information about marijuana is more complex than the simple statements you often hear. Learn about factual information that is based on scientific research. In addition, we’ll discuss local and national trends related to substance abuse among our youth. Understand what factors put our youth at risk for use and what we, as a community, can do to strengthen protective factors to prevent or delay the onset of using substances.

Presented by counselors from Syntero in partnership with The STAND Project.
