Why is it important?

Cannabis use among adolescents and young adults can affect normal brain development, leading to problems in learning, memory, coordination, reaction time and judgment. Excessive and frequent use of cannabis is associated with hallucinations, paranoia, and a range of emotional problems.


May this endeavor ignite inspiration within others to establish similar projects in their own homeland.
