Laura Stack's Presentation Feedback and Website Link

Thanks to all who came to Laura Stack's presentation last night! All who attended were impressed with Laura's powerful presentation. I've had several conversations with attendees who expressed how unaware they were of the current dangers associated with high potency marijuana products. Landerschools is seeing an increase in students' use of these products. Especially concerning to us is the increased level of impairment the kids are exhibiting. Laura has developed a website that does a fantastic job of addressing the issue. Additionally, she has made available much of the latest science and research on these products.

Here is a link to Laura's website with more information.

If you attended, please take the time to complete our survey.
