Canadian Youth Perceptions on Cannabis
This report was published by the Canadian Centre on Substance Use & Addiction (CCSA).
HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:
To effectively prevent harms related to cannabis among adolescents, it is valuable to understand what youth believe are the effects associated with the drug and what could influence a youth to use it or abstain from using it. Youth are best suited to inform researchers about where gaps exist in current cannabis education and awareness efforts. This study aimed to examine what common misconceptions are held by youth, where gaps in evidence-based information exist, and how best to move forward with prevention efforts.
