About this event

As more states change the legal status of cannabis for non-medical or medical purposes, it is important to consider what this evolving legal climate means for prevention efforts. We will review the science related to cannabis and increasing THC concentration/potency, as well as the associations between cannabis use and mental health, academic outcomes, and risk for addiction. Opportunities for prevention and intervention will be discussed.

Objectives:

(1) Participants will be able to identify a screening measure for Cannabis Use Disorder

(2) Participants will be able to describe at least 2 risks/outcomes associated with cannabis use

(3) Participants will be able to identify at least one prevention opportunity for use on campus
