Understanding High-Potency Marijuana
Use of high potency marijuana is growing in Maine and use among students is following a similar trend. This is especially concerning because today’s marijuana products contain very high levels of THC, many times higher than just 20 years ago. The National Institutes of Health reports that marijuana use in youth can cause long-term, permanent changes to the brain and lead to many health problems. Including anxiety, depression, suicidality, and psychosis.
To help families better understand the dangers of jarijuana use, Scarborough High school, and our student group “Sources of Strength,” have teamed up to host and informational program entitled “Understanding Today’s Marijuana” on Wednesday, April 12, from 6:30 - 8:00 PM in the Auditorium at Scarborough HIgh School.
