Marijuana: A whole new ballgame—talk with your kids

“It’s a whole new ballgame.” The conversation—“When I was a kid…” can be a good way to start talking about marijuana showing we were kids once, too. But it can be tricky. The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids wants parents to know that marijuana is more potent by far today than in the past. The THC concentration (psychoactive ingredient) in marijuana was about 4 percent in the 1980s; it now averages 14.5 percent and some strains contain as much as 30 percent. Comments (0)
