Development of the Cannabis Actions and Practices (CAP): A Parent-Focused Intervention to Address Adolescent Marijuana Use

Investigators are developing a parent-focused intervention to help parent medical marijuana (MM) users address adolescent marijuana use

There is an urgent need in the states where medical and/or recreational marijuana is legalized for innovative approaches to help parents address adolescent marijuana use, including resources uniquely tailored to parents who are medical marijuana patients and partnerships with cannabis dispensaries to expand the reach of effective practices.

This research project involves the development and pilot-testing of an empirically based, low cost intervention designed to enhance parenting behaviors that limit youth exposure to marijuana, reduce or halt youth marijuana use, and increase youth awareness of the harmful consequences of marijuana during the youth years.
