Book Title: Cannabis and Other Substance Use: An Information Guide for Adolescents

Recreational use of cannabis is now legal in Canada.  Concerns about increasing use of cannabis and its harmful health effects on adolescents have been widely studied.

Adolescents may have tried or know someone who uses cannabis and other substances and wish to know more on the topic.

This health promotion book provides adolescents across all provinces and territories in Canada with current information on cannabis and other substances, cannabis laws and how these laws affect them.

 

The book also helps adolescents understand the harmful effects of substance use on their physical and mental health. Through discussions on the benefits of drug-free living, suggestions on ways to live their best lives, and information on where to find help and support, adolescents are empowered to stay in control, resist substance use and live happy, meaningful lives.
