Prevention in a Time of Changing Cannabis Policies, Products, and Potency

In this 90-minute webinar, we will review current science related to cannabis use with a focus on what it means for substance misuse prevention professionals, including trends after legalization and risk and protective factors. The webinar will cover prevention strategies that can be used to address cannabis use, given the most up-to-date research on risk and protection. We will also explore potential partners in cannabis prevention, including the important role of parents and caregivers, schools/campuses, and law enforcement.
