Parents, has the legalization of recreational marijuana changed how you talk to your kids about the drug?
Teens, are your parents saying the right things to you, or are they missing the boat?
On Friday, April 7th, on CPR's Colorado Matters, we'll dive deep into the issue of teenagers and marijuana use, examining the challenges young people and their parents face in this brave new legal world. To do that, we're looking for just the right guests to join us for an on-air round-table discussion.
We want to hear from parents and teenagers about how things have changed since recreational pot became legal for adults, including whether youth are using more, and whether they feel more pressure to use it. Teenagers, what are you experiencing among your friends and at your school? For parents, we'll discuss how you can talk with your kids about marijuana, and how young or old kids should be when you start having that conversation.
If you or someone you know might be interested in participating as an on-air guest, please contact Colorado Matters to tell us a bit about yourself and your situation. (If that link doesn't automatically produce an email, please send us one to firstname.lastname@example.org and put "Teens and Marijuana panel" in the subject line.)
