This booklet summarises what we know about the impact of cannabis use on young people. Topics covered include: what is cannabis, cannabis potency, effects of cannabis on the body, mental health, brain and lungs, cannabis and addiction, risks to young people from cannabis use including pregnancy, driving and the law.
NCPIC’s ‘What’s the Deal?’ series aim to give relevant information on cannabis to different target groups, including parents, young people and cannabis users wanting to quit cannabis. They provide information in a conversational tone and are designed to be handed out to clients or put in brochure display racks.
