The Eastern Ontario Health Unit (EOHU), in collaboration with community partners, is holding a series of forums for parents in our region on the upcoming Cannabis Act law (coming into effect on October 17, 2018) and what it means for our youth.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • General cannabis information

  • Regional statistics on cannabis use
  • Legalization: what is and isn’t permitted
  • Recommendations
  • Talking to your teen about cannabis
