Just Released: New Supplement on Marijuana

Project ALERT has just published a new supplement on marijuana.  It includes some of the basics (e.g., what forms does marijuana come in?; why does it make you “high”?) to more complex information and current issues (e.g., is marijuana addictive?; what is medical marijuana?).  As issues surrounding the legalization of both recreational and medical marijuana are increasingly present in the culture and on the news, we encourage Project ALERT facilitators to incorporate this up-to-date information into one or more lessons. 


We suggest reviewing the marijuana supplement prior to implementing Core Lesson 2, Consequences of Smoking Cigarettes and Marijuana.  You may find some helpful answers to common FAQs that students might ask during this session. 


We hope you find this new supplement useful as you talk to students and other colleagues who are teaching Project ALERT.
