This comprehensive curriculum goes in-depth to help high school aged youth understand marijuana's impact in the adolescent brain and body, the differences between adult and youth marijuana use, the risks associated with youth marijuana use, as well as the difference between medicinal and recreational use.
Designed for young adolescents, this curriculum supports early preventive efforts by educating middle school aged youth about the impacts of youth marijuana use. This curriculum can be dropped into a health or science class or can support school or organization-wide marijuana prevention efforts.
Taking a more social-emotional approach, this enhanced version of the Advanced Impact Awareness curriculum uses information and activities to reinforce learning with challenging prompts and asks students to examine the external and internal influences that may impact their decision to use or abstain from marijuana.
This program begins to lay the foundation for effective youth marijuana prevention by reaching youth during their elementary years. The program approaches issues such as marijuana’s impact on the developing brain and body as well as edible and labeling awareness and education to prevent accidental ingestion.
The engaging discussions, activities, and journal writing in this curriculum is intended to provide support to students who are motivated to reduce or quit their marijuana use. This curriculum includes the required an MEI Intervention workbook to help students explore their marijuana use habits and patterns.
This program can support trusted adults, schools and organizations to keep kids engaged while still having an effective and appropriate consequence for a marijuana related violation. The Infraction Response program can be used as part of the restorative justice process or to reduce a suspension.
The MEI team will go to schools, districts, or businesses to support educators and administration in implementing the Marijuana Education Initiative program so that the school or organization can efficiently deliver a comprehensive roll-out of all curricula components.
