Marijuana Talk Kit: What you need to know to talk with your teen about marijuana
Partnership for Drug-Free Kids
Marijuana — legal or otherwise — is a hot topic. 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 marijuana landscape; one that includes new policies like legalization, as well as new products, like “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 marijuana in particular. Your teens are likely asking you some tough questions and challenging you on the topic of marijuana. We’ve worked with top experts in health and parenting to help you talk with your teen. Believe it or not, you are the most powerful influence 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.
