Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to Host Live Facebook Chat on Teen Marijuana Use

Marijuana Talk Kit- Facebook Chat- Newsroom Blog Post- Partnership for Drug-Free Kids“Marijuana is a plant. It’s natural. How harmful could it be?”

“But YOU smoked weed when YOU were younger.”

“Would you rather I drink alcohol? Weed is so much safer.”

How would you answer? These days, it’s becoming harder for parents to talk with teens about marijuana. But the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids is here to help. Join us Monday, April 20 from 8- 8:30 p.m. EDT for a special live Facebook Chat with Heather Senior, LCSW, Partnership Parent Support Network Manager. We invite you to submit questions in advance (below in the comments section). Heather will answer your questions during the chat to help you better navigate the changing marijuana landscape and have productive conversations with your teens.

To participate, please visit and “Like” the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids’ Facebook page at 8 p.m. EDT. The chat will take place right under the announcement image in the comment thread. Please make sure to refresh your browser throughout the chat to view all comments in real time.

    We have a “tween”, 11 yrs old. We have had small conversations about drugs off and on since our granddaughter was about 8 or 9 yrs old. Both her parents have battled drug addiction. How do we talk about the fact that because of this, she has a higher risk of addiction herself without making her feel she’s doomed because of this fact.
