Understanding Youth Cannabis Use in Ontario

This factsheet was created by YouthREX.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

While there are risks for using cannabis at a young age, the majority of youth who use pot don’t experience negative effects or develop problematic consumption patterns.

We know that the most effective approaches to cannabis education are those that resonate with young people’s lived realities, and that each person’s experience with marijuana is unique. At the same time, understanding the ‘big picture’ – when, how, and why youth use pot – can help us have more productive conversations about the role that substances play in our lives.

This factsheet outlines what you need to know about youth cannabis use in Ontario.
