In June 2018, Ralph Cantor presented to a group of high school students about marijuana/cannabis. This video serves as a useful resource for educators working with youth and is recommended viewing before implementing the Marijuana Awareness & Prevention Toolkit activities. This video is not intended to be shown directly to students, since the interactive materials developed and posted on this website will address many of the main points covered in the video. Please note, this video is 144 minutes long, so you may want to break it up in more than one sitting. In the future, we will be breaking this video up by specific topics and lessons to accompany them. Enjoy!
