Speaker

Anna McKiernan, Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, explores findings of Canadian Youth Perceptions on Cannabis report. Canadian youth have one of the highest rates of cannabis use worldwide. Average age of initiation for cannabis use among Canadian youth is 15.4 years (Statistics Canada, 2016).

Youth are unclear on the effects and harms of cannabis, which could put them at an increased risk. This is concerning as brain development and mental health can be compromised if cannabis use, particularly frequent use, is initiated in early adolescence.
