The Marijuana Awareness Education Course - February 23, 2021

10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

This interactive workshop is a revised version of the Marijuana Awareness Education Course (MAEC) and walks the participants through various subjects related to marijuana. Subjects include social norms and values of marijuana, marijuana myths, possible negative health consequences and resources on recovery. MAEC was developed as an education course for those needing a court mandated awareness workshop but the information is of value to anyone wanting to learn more about the facts and science behind marijuana.
