For the Parents

If your child has been using Cannabis, Alcohol or any other substance he or she may be moving toward dependence.  If you notice changes in behavior or attitudes such as isolation, anger, drop in school performance, lack of energy or motivation, substance use might be the reason.

Although Cannabis has been legalized in CA it is not legal for individuals younger than 21.

The Cannabis strength that is being used is very high in THC.  Many of our youth have started using THC concentrates that can have THC levels in excess of 80% THC, which is highly addictive.

THC concentrates are used in a vape pen or wax pen and the substance does not smell like Marijuana.  Your son or daughter could be using THC concentrates without your knowledge.  If you start finding paraphernalia associated with substance use your son or daughter may need some assistance to stop the use.
