The Impact of THC on Our Children: A Parent’s Worst Nightmare

Are you concerned about your teen’s THC use (smoking marijuana, vaping, dabbing, or using edibles)? In The Impact of THC on Our Children: A Parent’s Worst Nightmare, twenty-five Parents of Children with Cannabis-Induced Psychosis (POCCIP) share their real-life stories of their children’s THC use, addiction, mental illness, psychosis, and sometimes, sadly, suicide. This book is published by Johnny’s Ambassadors Youth THC Prevention, a nonprofit in Colorado, with a mission to educate parents, teens, and communities about the dangers of today’s potent THC products on adolescent brain development, psychosis, and suicide. Learn the REAL truth about today’s potent THC products and what they are doing to our children’s mental health. When THC products are legalized in some states, there is often a misperception they are safe. To the contrary, there is NO safe level of THC in the developing adolescent mind, and these products are not harmless for teens. Get your teen to stop using THC before it’s too late.
