I visited the LCE 5th grade on Wednesday, and we talked about marijuana. We watched some clips from a video called “The Marijuana Files” about the ongoing studies into the permanent negative effects of THC on the brains of kids. The show follows two teenage hosts that travel across the country to interview researchers. While we watched the video, the kids filled in a handout that points out the effects of THC on the heart, lungs and brain.
I think its important to talk to the kids about marijuana in depth at least once a year, and each presentation builds on the material from the previous year. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
