The Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago is reminding parents and guardians about the dangers of children being exposed to marijuana including second-hand smoke. It is advocating for children to be protected against its use.
During a media briefing at Tower D, International Waterfront Centre today Monday, January 13, Chairman of the CA’s Board of Management Hanif Benjamin stressed, “like alcohol it remains illegal to give children marijuana”. He added, “I want to dispel the notion because 30 grammes are now legal for adults, that we can give children. The laws remain the same with the protection of children.”
