Café Scientifique Event: Let’s Talk about Marijuana and Teens

I received this event invite and thought I’d share it with y’all.  It sounds like it will be an interesting talk (and I know most of the “experts” and they are pretty awesome).

Please join us for a CIHR Café Scientifique

Let’s Talk about Marijuana and Teens

Why do more youth in British Columbia use marijuana than anywhere else in Canada? What are the health and social effects of frequent use? How can we talk about these issues?

Refreshments and lively discussion about the latest research and local initiatives related to youth marijuana use. Come and be part of the conversation!
