Peer-driven messaging regarding regular marijuana use too often understates the potential dangers to the user, while society driven drug prevention messaging tends to overstate marijuana health dangers. The result of such mixed messaging has created a lack of trust in what to believe. This Workshop will highlight important science-based prevention principles as a backdrop and focus to significantly raise the overall ‘Marijuana, and other Drug IQ’ throughout the school student mentoring environment. The dangers of regular marijuana use, within the backdrop of learning a health-based understanding of brain ecology, our internal cannabinoid system, changing medical marijuana laws, legitimate and overstated health risk claims connected to increased THC content, K-2, cancer and psychosis risks will be addressed.
