Marijuana and Our Youth

Marijuana and the Responsible Parent - coverAs marijuana laws change, parents have the best opportunity to guide young people. Winner of the National Institute of Drug Abuse’s Pacesetter Award, Marijuana and the Responsible Parent (10th Edition) offers parents a practical blueprint on how to talk with their teenager (or even their pre-teen) about weed, vaping and smoking pot. This valuable and fast-selling book is available on Amazon now.

When it comes to marijuana and young adults there are three realities:

  1. Marijuana is available, and young people are tempted to try it.
  2. There are risks regarding use, especially among young people.
  3. Parents should be trusted to guide their children in these areas of risk.

Neither pro nor anti-marijuana, the goal of the book is to help you place your child on a life path that does not lead to substance abuse, and that journey begins with communication.

Talking to your kids about substance abuse or using marijuana and vaping doesn’t need to be an uncomfortable conversation for either of you. With the considered advice in this guide, you can be the trusted and informed resource your teenager needs before their inevitable exposure.

Endorsed by national experts on drug and alcohol abuse among teens, this concise resource is everything you need to succeed with your parental responsibilities and protect your child from the risks associated with drug use.

This 10th Edition includes the most current information on legalization and vaping.
