This training is designed for attorneys, service providers and community members and provides a primer on the impact of marijuana on the adolescent brain. The teenage years are the last best opportunity for an individual to reach their full brain potential. Regular marijuana use actually changes the structure of the teenage brain. This presentation will help professionals make sense out of the recent change in laws and policy and better understand health implications around marijuana legalization in our state.

The WSBA has declined CLE credit for this presentation. No pre-registration is required. Members of the public are welcome. For directions or information please view our web page at www.co.thurston.wa.us/fjc
