NDAA Presents: The Legalization of Marijuana and its Adverse Impact on Youth

Event Dates

Today’s marijuana is much more potent than in the past. Marijuana in the Woodstock era contained 5% THC. By comparison, today’s pot edibles, candies, cookies, ice creams, and waxes contain as much as 99% THC. What lessons have we learned from how legalizing these high-THC products have impacted our youth? Dr. Kevin Sabet from Smart Approaches to Marijuana will walk participants through the latest statistics and facts about the adverse impact of marijuana on youth. This webinar is brought to you by the National District Attorney's Association in conjunction with OJJDP's NTTAC.
