"Marijuana: Answering the Tough Questions....
A Guide for Parents and Concerned Adults"
The Governor's Prevention Partnership has released a new fact sheet, "Marijuana: Answering the Tough Questions, A Guide for Parents and Concerned Adults." This document was created for adults working closely with teens, to help navigate the changing landscape of marijuana laws in Connecticut and to address changing beliefs about the drug. In light of the new medical marijuana law that came into effect on October 1 and the increase in use rates among teens, we hope this quick reference guide will dispel myths, clarify the new laws, and provide parents, guardians, and other adult figures with talking points. You may also access detailed information on the marijuana decriminalization law by downloading the resource, "New Law Decriminalizes Possession of Less Than One-Half Ounce of Marijuana: Explanation of Penalties." Both resources can be found on the Partnership's website at: http://www.preventionworksct.org/marijuanalaw.html
