We can look at this in terms of other things we've done. We can look at how we've educated children around alcohol use. From studies we've done in B.C., alcohol use is actually decreasing in teenagers. Around cigarette use, smoking is just not done anymore in that age group.
We've talked to students about these things. We've talked to them about marijuana, for example, and we've talked to them about drugs. They say, “Oh, we never hear anything. Since we don't get information in a formal way in school, we hear about it on the streets. We hear untruths, and that's what makes it tempting to us.”
I think we do need to talk to people in a very forthright and open way about drugs, about their uses, their benefits, and their harms, so they can make those informed decisions. When we do it right, we've seen that it works.
