Cannabis Effects on the Developing Brain

As Canadians approach the date of legalization of Cannabis on July 1, 2018, there is so much work to be done to inform Canadians about the effects of Cannabis on the developing brain. The brain is in development until age 25 and use of Cannabis can have a disastrous effect on a young person or emerging adult. The Schizophrenia Society of Canada (SSC), working in partnership with the Canadian Consortium on Early Psychosis Intervention Services (CCEPIS) is planning to develop informational tools to assist people in making informed decisions about using Cannabis.
