Marijuana: Weeding Out Fact From Fiction

Monday, Mar 11, 2019

6:00pm – 8:00pm

Alicia Farrell, PhD will present “Marijuana: Weeding Out Fact from Fiction” at Deep River Town Hall Auditorium on Monday, March 11 from 6:00-8:00. This talk will cover the latest research findings and national trends related to marijuana use in the teen years and discuss practical tips for keeping children drug free. This information is vital for today’s responsible parenting, policy making and mentoring.

  • Is marijuana addictive?

  • Is marijuana a gateway drug?

  • How potent is today’s marijuana compared to the 1970’s and why does it matter?

  • How does marijuana affect teenage brain development and are those effects permanent?

  • How and where do parents draw the line with substance abuse?

This talk is relevant for parents, grandparents, school administrators, counselors, teachers, community and political leaders, and children middle school aged and older.

As legislators once again consider bills to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana, local youth service bureaus urge all elected officials, parents and teens to find reliable information, learn more about today’s marijuana and THC products, and engage in constructive dialogue about the consequences of marijuana use on public health, in our neighborhoods and in our own families.
