The purpose of our CannaTalk™ event series is to create an engaging conversation around the various topics and issues that we face with cannabis as well as provide supporting resources to help them further expand on these matters and take action when needed.

CannaTalk Vol. 7 Flyer.jpg
May 18, 7:00 PM

A generation ago, responsible parenting meant rejecting cannabis, considered a taboo indulgence (or even a serious risk) for the young and foolish. Changing attitudes about cannabis and a growing awareness of its medicinal value has led to greater acceptance among parents. According to a recent Yahoo survey, 54% of Americans who consume cannabis are parents, and 30% have children under 18. 

CannaTalk Vol. 7: Cannabis & Parenting - Shifting Perspectives in Our Households will be a discussion about the critical issues parents face around cannabis, such as: what constitutes responsible use; consuming while pregnant and nursing; talking to children about the plant; and the increased scrutiny and penalization of poor and vulnerable POC families, for whom the threat of separation over cannabis usage looms large.


Join us for this conversation followed by a Live Q&A with the panelist where you can directly submit questions via Zoom live chat on May 18th at 7pm EDT.
