Course Description

CE Course Description

Marijuana remains the most abused illegal substance among youth, and by the time they graduate high school, about 46 percent of U.S. teens will have tried marijuana at least once in their lifetime. This brief continuing education course was developed using information from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and is intended to provide information about marijuana use among young people. The effects of marijuana are discussed as well as tips for parents who suspect marijuana use, and treatment options.

3. Determine the prevalence of marijuana use and identify treatments that are available for people addicted to marijuana.

4. Outline the ways in which parents can talk openly with their children and stay actively engaged in their lives as a means of influencing their choices, including whether or not to use marijuana.
