    Legalising cannabis would benefit the ways young people are educated about its use

    Legalising cannabis would benefit the ways young people are educated about its use


    Canterbury University's Dr Rachael Dixon is an expert in school-based health education.

    She says if cannabis were to become legal, it would open up healthy opportunities for its exploration in secondary schools.

    This is about getting students to think critically, make good decisions and understand the risks.

    Dixon says changes in cannabis law would also allow health education to grow and be given more value.
