CE Course Description
Although teen marijuana use has dropped significantly since the late 1990s, marijuana remains the most abused illegal substance among youth. This brief beginning level continuing education course, developed using information from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), is intended to provide relevant information about marijuana that can be shared with young people and their parents. The impact and effects of marijuana use are discussed as well as tips for parents who suspect marijuana use, and treatment options.
