Marijuana information From Health Canada

The Cannabis Talk Kit

As part of a Cannabis Public Education Campaign, Health Canada partnered with Drug Free Kids Canada to support the Cannabis Talk Kit, a tool designed to provide parents with information to talk with their teens about cannabis. Seniors might want to pass this information on to their adult children or use it as a guide to talk with their grandchildren.

As you may already be aware, Canada’s youth have some of the world’s highest rates of cannabis consumption. In 2015, 21% of youth and 30% of young adults reported using cannabis within the last year. We also know that all mind-altering substances — including cannabis — are harmful to the still-developing teen brain.

Parents and grandparents can play an important role in influencing their teens’ lifestyle choices, including decisions about substance use. That’s why it is important that parents have up-to-date information about cannabis and to engage in ongoing conversations with their kids or grandkids. The Cannabis Talk Kit presents some of the questions teens might pose or arguments they might make about cannabis and provides guidance to parents and grandparents on how they might respond.

For more information and to download the Cannabis Talk Kit, please visit Canada.ca or the Drug Free Kids Canada’ website. Printed copies can also be ordered online from Health Canada.

Welcome to Seniors PEI, a resource site designed for seniors of Prince Edward Island. Here you will find a wide variety of information for seniors, including links to regional and national and international websites that we believe can be helpful to seniors; websites that provide information about programs, services and areas of interest for seniors and for those who work with seniors.

We have news for Canadian seniors: links to current news stories, updated daily, that involve or would be of concern to seniors, focusing on the Maritimes. There is also a senior artist gallery section, showcasing senior artists of the Island. If you are a senior artist or know of one who should be featured in this section, please email us at admin@seniorspei.ca to let us know. We will contact you or the recommended artist to arrange for their inclusion on our pages.
