High Expectations

How can a naturally grown plant possibly be harmful? Impossible, right? Or is it? The controversial topic of marijuana use by teens is presented in such a way that students often do not even realize they are learning.

This informative and entertaining workshop will cover:

  • History of Marijuana Use
  • The Question of Marijuana Use as a Natural Substance
  • The Effects of Marijuana on the Brain
  • The Short-Term and Long-Term Effects of Marijuana on the Adolescent Body (Lungs/Heart/Reproductive System)
  • Youth Use Versus Adult Use

Current society is filled with messages on the harmlessness of marijuana. How are teens supposed to make sense of the competing messages between their parents, teachers and adults and what they see in the media and their friends? This workshop cuts through the partisan information and provides unbiased, scientific facts.
