10 Marijuana and Alcohol Harm Reduction Tips for Parents
If you are a parent or guardian with children, teens or even young adults, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know your marijuana or alcohol use and attitudes can influence your youth’s using them too.
For example, a recent study published in the Journal of Adolescent Health showed that parents’ current use of marijuana predicted their children’s use of alcohol and marijuana, as did children’s perceptions that their parent’s supported marijuana use.

So all parents, regardless of whether or not they use marijuana or alcohol, should take care to protect their youth from substance use harm.
This list of 10 tips to help parents is included among the customizable materials in the Marijuana Awareness Media Campaign.
