"I’m not interested in trying weed, but interested in knowing the facts"
With cannabis use being increasingly normalized, do you ever feel pressured to try it, but don’t really want to? If you’re committed not to use weed, that’s your choice and it’s a valid one. It’s really best not to consume cannabis until your brain is fully developed at age 25.
"I use weed occasionally, never more than once a week"
Most people who use weed occasionally do so without problems, however, the safest choice is to delay use until after age 25, or not use at all. The earlier and more frequent weed is consumed, the greater the chance of experiencing negative long-term outcomes associated with it. That’s probability math for you!
In 2018, the National Cannabis Survey, conducted by Statistics Canada, showed more than half (56%) of youth 15 years of age and older who consume cannabis describe themselves as “frequent” cannabis consumers.
