In 2016 the Canadian Centre for Substance Abuse (CCSA) undertook a research project with youth across Canada to better understand why youth are using marijuana, what are their misconceptions, what influences their choices and what are their thoughts about prevention. To effectively prevent harms related to adolescents and marijuana use, parents and youth will need the facts about marijuana and its effects.
