Learn how to talk with your teen about cannabis - Drug Free Kids Canada Cannabis Talk Kit. 

Keeping the lines of communication open can make a big difference in preventing your teen's drug use.

Read Drug Free Kids Canada's Cannabis Talk Kit to help start the conversation now.


Drug Free Kids Canada's latest campaign, “The Call That Comes After,”  aims to drive home the dangers of high driving and being a passenger in a car with a driver who has used marijuana to parents and teens.

Drug Free Kids Canada has developed a modern tool of communications allowing parents an easy way to begin an important conversation with their kids about the dangers of driving high - even when it's not easy.  We urge parents to try it out.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or a combination of the two is very dangerous.  The use of any psychoactive (mind-altering) drug makes it highly unsafe to drive a car and is illegal—just like driving after drinking alcohol.

High driving puts at risk not only the driver but also passengers and others who share the road.

Mind Your Mind's "Getting High?" Interactive Tool

When most people think about taking a substance they only consider what the substance is. You also need to consider where you will be when you're taking it, who you will be with, what kind of mood you're in and more. This tool is about making decisions about drug use and is not intended to be medical advice.
