Partnership for Drug-Free Kids Releases New Resource for Parents on Teenage Marijuana Use

Active and ongoing discussion about the risks of drug and alcohol use between parents and their children is a strong protective factor for reducing the chances of young people getting involved in substance abuse.

The Partnership for Drug-Free kids released the new resource, “Marijuana Talk Kit: What You Need to Know to Talk with Your Kids about Marijuana”. Targeted at parents of teenagers, the Talk Kit provides parents with information on how to meaningfully discuss marijuana with their children.

The increased prevalence of medical and legalized marijuana, in addition to the normalization of marijuana in pop culture, can make it difficult for parents to talk about marijuana with their children. 41 percent of marijuana users report initiating use before the age of 15, making early parental involvement especially important.
