Cannabis Awareness and Education

Cannabis is a broad term that describes various products derived from the leaves, flowers and resins of the cannabis plant. These products exist in various forms and are used for different purposes (medical, recreational, industrial).

The Leduc Community Drug Action Committee (LCDAC) has put together a tool kit to assist parents, guardians, teachers and other adults in having a conversation about cannabis use with the young people in their lives. Check out our Cannabis Tool Kit for some helpful advice on understanding and preventing cannabis use in youth.
