Course Overview

Did you know that:

  • Massachusetts voted to legalize recreational marijuana in 2016.
  • The first ‘pot shop’ opened in 2018.
  • Literature indicates that adolescents use recreational marijuana for its psychoactive properties and for self-medication of mood disorders.*

Join us for this thought-provoking and informative workshop to learn more about caring for adolescents and their families. We will consider questions, such as:

  • What are the signs of cannabis use and addiction?
  • How will you assess your adolescent patient’s use of cannabis?
  • How will you counsel adolescent patients and their parents about cannabis?
