Frankly Speaking -- Cannabis, Kids, and the Classroom: a balanced way forward for educators

Cannabis, Kids, and the Classroom: a balanced way forward for educators

Dr. Blye Frank, Dean, Faculty of Education, the University of British Columbia, hosts the fourth installment of FRANKLY SPEAKING on Wednesday, March 13th, 2019.

In light of Canada’s recent legalization of the use of recreational marijuana and other cannabis products, how can educators help students navigate responsible and legal consumption by young people both now and in the future?

Glen Hansman, President of the BC Teachers Federation (BCTF), will be offering the perspective of an educator, while Dr. Muffy Greenway, Child Psychiatrist and Dr. M-J Milloy, Canopy Growth Professor of Cannabis Science, will provide practical and scientific insight into how cannabis affects the minds of students.

After the presentation, event attendees will be encouraged to ask questions to receive real-time answers from these professionals.

FRANKLY SPEAKING provides alumni and friends of UBC’s Faculty of Education with the opportunity to hear from prominent speakers on featured topics relevant to the field of education.
