MED­I­CAL VER­SUS RECRE­ATIONAL USE

Cape Breton Post - - CLASSIFIEDS/LIFESTYLES -

Solid re­search on med­i­cal mar­i­juana’s ef­fects in chil­dren and teens is lack­ing, although some stud­ies have sug­gested it may ben­e­fit kids with hardto-treat seizures. The report says other po­ten­tial ben­e­fits, doses and ef­fects are mostly un­known. Recre­ational use is il­le­gal for those un­der age 21 even in states that al­low adult use. Par­ents should avoid us­ing mar­i­juana in front of their kids and should keep all mar­i­juana prod­ucts stored out of kids’ sight, the academy says.
