August 8 – Marijuana: What Teens and Parents Should Know – Recent political changes in relation to marijuana are only part of the story. The publicized and politically charged world of drug policy has undergone immense changes over the past several years and those changes manifest not just in policy but also in the physical makeup of the cannabis plant. Not only has the perception of the plant changed, the actual plant itself has undergone dramatic changes as it has been industrialized and brought into a commercial market. As public opinion has softened towards cannabis the effects of consuming today’s marijuana remain poorly understood by many. With increasing acceptance, often driven by corporate interests, use has been rising steadily among all demographics. Many have grown up in settings where cannabis use is the norm and cannabis use disorder accepted as typical behavior. Cannabis use disorder is on the rise and the changing makeup of the plant and its derivatives is making treatment more complex and challenging. Given these realities, the need for continuing education regarding the evolution of cannabis and new forms of consumption as well as potential downsides is extremely important. A more holistic understanding of today’s marijuana will position us to have more relevant and potentially helpful conversations with those we serve. This conversation, directed at parents and teens, will be had in a respectful and nonpolitical manor promoting sound science while considering the practical reality of discussing cannabis in 2021 with a population that genuinely believes “it’s just weed.”
