The legalization of marijuana in Canada is bringing the use of the drug to the forefront in many discussions.

The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit can help if those conversations happen at the family dinner table.

The Health Unit says it’s important as parents to begin a dialogue about drugs, including cannabis, with your kids.

It says being open and talking often about drug use will help your kids make informed decisions.

To help with those talks, the NBPSDHU has a page on its website filled with facts about marijuana including a link to the Cannabis Talk Kit provided by Drugs Free Kids Canada to get you started.
