A RE­CENT sur­vey con­ducted by the Na­tional Cannabis Preven­tion and In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre has re­vealed that more than 65% of par­ents are not sure of the ef­fects or con­se­quences cannabis use can have, de­spite be­liev­ing they hold the pri­mary re­spon­si­bil­ity for the drug ed­u­ca­tion of their chil­dren. Dr Peter Gates of the Na­tional Cannabis Preven­tion and In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre is en­cour­ag­ing par­ents to ed­u­cate them­selves. For more in­for­ma­tion, see the web­site at www.ncpic.org.au.
