Pot and Prevention: How do we talk about marijuana in these changing times?
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us as we work together to help each other identify specific barriers we face when addressing marijuana within our communities, and how to use this new information when articulating prevention messages about marijuana when talking to others. We will explore the power of language and the importance of choosing our words carefully, as well as how to frame presentations and conversations around research versus opinion. In addition, we will discuss key persuasion techniques that should be in any preventionist’s toolbox.
