This resource is broken into three separate booklets. The content draws directly from CSSDP’s Sensible Cannabis Education Toolkit, originally published in 2018 to help educators, parents and adults have evidence-informed conversations with youth. Recognizing that cannabis legalization is a process and not an event, it’s important to note that this booklet was published in 2021 and the Cannabis Act and other related legislation is subject to change. We encourage you to stay up to date with revisions and updates to both the Cannabis Act and your local cannabis legislation.

Booklet 1 focuses on CSSDP’s Guiding Principles, which are meant to provide a framework of core concepts + values to support the development of youth cannabis education. They are intended to guide decisions related to cannabis education and conversation practices rather than act as a set of detailed instructions or an action plan for implementing a drug education curriculum. The guiding principles underscore a broad set of concepts that, collectively, can guide the design and implementation of youth cannabis education.
