This week, I had the honor of being interviewed by the Democrat-Herald to highlight the importance of talking with youth about marijuana at an early age to prevent adolescent substance abuse.
The Oregonian Newspaper highlights Let's Talk About Marijuana as a helpful resource for adults when kids ask about marijuana.
Topic of conversation: What questions have youth asked you about marijuana, and how did you respond? What suggestions do you have for other parents who have been faced with these questions? Comment down below!
"Where to begin..."
That's one of the first thoughts that come to mind for many adults when determining the best strategy to initiate "the talk" about marijuana with their children and other youth.

*The purpose of this blog is to provide a safe space for adults to exchange tips about their healthy conversation about marijuana with children and teens. Of course, we must be mindful that every adult has a different point of view and parenting style. Yet, everyone can agree one thing: marijuana is not for children and teens to use. Respect and tolerance is expected from everyone using this blog. The main goal is to provide each other with resources and suggestions to initiate a positive conversation about marijuana with youth to prevent misuse and substance abuse.*
