On Thursday, 1/13 at pm Healthy Lamoille Valley is hosting an online event: Teens and Cannabis: a look into the data on the impacts of legal retail markets on youth. With retail cannabis coming to our region it’s important that we help youth, parents, and the broader community to understand the impacts of marijuana on our student populations. When we understand the impacts we can take steps to intervene and reduce the risks for our children and youth.
Our presenter, John Searles, is an expert in understanding and sharing the data. Some of you may remember that John joined us for an Upstream Lamoille meeting several years ago.
Dr. Searles was the Substance Abuse Research and Policy Analyst and Chair of the State Epidemiological Workgroup for the Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Programs in the Vermont Department of Health. He retired in 2019. He is currently an appointed member of the legislatively mandated Substance Misuse Prevention Advisory Council and serves on the council’s Equity, Prevention, and Policy subcommittees.
