Dealing with Student Substance Abuse
One of the most concerning trends today is the prevalence of e-cigarettes in our schools. Reports from various governmental agencies reflect huge yearly increases in student vaping and associated lung disease and deaths. In addition to this growing problematic trend, 23 states and D.C. have now legalized marijuana in some form. Vaping and marijuana use are now more common than cigarette smoking among American teenagers; therefore, schools must know their options when responding to these widespread risks. In this session we will discuss the types of policies, procedures, and training that schools should utilize in managing these risks in a proactive way.
