Prevention and education

Cannabis use often begins when people are young, so it’s important to provide prevention and education initiatives that reduce the likelihood of people taking up the drug to begin with [23503]. If people are already experimenting or using cannabis, it’s important to provide accurate information in a non-judgemental way. Parents, caregivers and other family members are often the best people to provide this information.

The Cannabis Information and Support website provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander specific resources that cover topics such as: cannabis and the community; cannabis and the law; and cannabis and pregnancy [25927][25928][25929].

is an educational resource incorporating a series of activities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school-aged students, to encourage them to seek help for problems related to drug use and mental health [24175].
