Marijuana and the Developing Brain
In this interactive online module, participants will explore the inner workings of the brain—how it functions and develops normally, as well as how it operates while under the influence of THC. Through learning about the differences between the young, developing brain and the fully developed adult brain, along with a deeper understanding of the short- and longer-term effects youth use has on cognition, mental health and memory, youth learners will be better equipped to make informed decisions about using marijuana. For kids and adults alike, this 45 minute online certificated module is a wonderful way to enhance understanding of the impacts of youth marijuana use.
