With so many studies and research being done on the cannabis plant it is very hard to distinguish what is credible and what is not. There are a lot of conflicting opinions and misinformation that can influence our teens into using. A part of our program here at Inspirations for Youth and Families is to properly inform our teens on the effects that all drugs have on their bodies.
This is week we wanted to put our teens in rehab to the test by showing them a documentary on the effects cannabis can have on teens both short term and long term. After the movie we took some of our clients aside to ask what they thought of the movie and how true do they think the information is.
