COMMUNITY EDUCATION: What Every Parent Needs to Know About Cannabis

By Behavioral Health, Events, Health & Wellness

What Every Parent Needs to Know About Cannabis.

Our youth are more savvy than ever. Without the right information, our children are in danger. Get the facts.

The legalization of recreational cannabis is having a profound impact on our community and children. While the industry assembles the appropriate regulations, our youth are frequently experiencing the unintended consequences.

An increase in Emergency Department and Psychiatric visits are propelling the medical and Public Health communities to take action. There is too much inaccurate information related to recreational cannabis use. It is not reasonable to rely on law enforcement and the cannabis industry to keep our communities safe. As a community member and a parent, it is our responsibility to become adequately informed on how to best respond to this legalization and recreational cannabis use being experienced by our youth.

The experts are now bringing this information to you in your community. Join Comprehensive Wellness, in a partnership with the Cannabis Safety Team, to become informed—and help ensure the safety of our children.

Join us for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from experts in the medical and public health community.
