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. 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. 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.
