MPN has become concerned about the high rates of cannabis use among young people in Marin. A substantial body of research shows that when youth under the age of 26 use cannabis frequently or heavily for “recreational” purposes, they can experience a wide range of adverse effects, including altered brain development, impaired decision-making, poor academic performance, diminished life satisfaction, cannabis dependence and addiction, and other mental health problems.
We are residents of Marin County including local health care professionals, public health advocates, educators, parents and teens. We are united by our concern over the commercialization of cannabis, high potency products and the consequences on youth.
