On October 17, 2018, cannabis will become legal. Teen Mental Health has created resources you can use to help educate yourself and youth. The adolescent years are crucial for brain growth and development and cannabis use can affect how our brains develop. This means it is critical to provide information on the potential side effects and help answer any questions. 

These evidence-based resources were developed by Dr. Stan Kutcher in partnership with Dr. Selene Etches (IWK Health Centre), Dr. Phil Tibbo (Nova Scotia Health Authority/Dalhousie University) and Dr. Rob Milin (University of Ottawa). Feel free to use and distribute these resources with whomever you feel will benefit.
