PTSA talks about legalized pot and kids
As of Jan. 1, recreational marijuana became legal in Washington state, creating a new set of challenges for communities, law enforcement and families. The Mount Si High School PTSA and Snoqualmie Valley Community Network co-host a discussion on the law change, with input from law enforcement, drug intervention experts and local teens.
All are invited to the forum, 7 p.m. Monday, March 24 at the Mount Si High School Auditorium. Hear about the impact of marijuana legalization on teens and families. Listen as a panel of Mount Si High School teens discuss their own perceptions and answer questions. Get information from the Snoqualmie Police Department about the details of the new law, and drug use in the Snoqualmie Valley. Kevin Haggerty, from the UW's Social Research Development Group, will present research-driven data about the effects of marijuana (and alcohol) on the teenage brain, and talk about "Marijuana Myths." Phoebe Terhaar, MSHS's Intervention Specialist, will provide concrete take-aways for parents and families.
