Partnership for Drug-free Kids

"Marijuana is a plant. It's natural. How harmful could it be?"

"But YOU smoked weed when YOU were younger."

"Would you rather I drink alcohol? Weed is so much safer."

Would you know what you'd say if confronted with these tough questions or arguments by your teen?

Marijuana is a hot topic. Between legalization, the normalization of the drug in the media and different ways of using (like "edible" cookies and candies, or vaporizers that minimize the telltale smell), it's becoming harder and harder for parents to talk to teens about weed.

That’s why we created our new Marijuana Talk Kit. We want to help families navigate through a changing marijuana landscape, and have productive, impactful conversations with their teens.
Inside the Talk Kit, you will find:
  • Facts about marijuana
  • Why marijuana is still risky for teens
  • Ways to talk with your teen about marijuana
  • What you should – and shouldn't – say to your teen when talking about marijuana
  • How to respond to your teen's questions and arguments
  • Resources to help
We know it's hard, and we're here to help.
