Alcohol, Tobacco, Cannabis and other drugs

Youth is a time of getting to know yourself and trying to fit in with others. Your youth may face peer pressure to use alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs. It is normal for your youth to be curious about these substances. There is a fear of the unknown, but a curiosity about things that are "off-limits."

This section will help you to know more about common substances, their risks, the law, and what you can do as a parent.
