London, Jan.27 (ANI): School kids in Britain have been given access to a 20-page booklet that provides them with tips on cannabis use.
Titled ”Know Cannabis”, the booklet, according to The Telegraph, spells out how the drug can make you feel relaxed and makes music ‘’sound better” as well as whether to use bongs or buckets and how to roll a joint.
The paper further goes on to say that it is not until page 14 that the document points out that the drug is illegal but is being handed out to young teenagers preparing for their GCSEs at schools in the North East.
It comes as the drugs were yesterday reclassified from Class C to Class B.
Aimed at youngsters, it includes advice on how best to take the drug.
The booklet begins by telling youngsters to ”Know the effects, how it is used, the risks, and how to avoid them”. The booklet is produced by Merseyside-based HIT, which provides ‘’social marketing campaigns” on drugs and alcohol and sexual health, which said it did not mean to encourage drug use and would be happy to listen to any complaints.
The Department for Children Schools and Families said it did not dictate what children were taught about drugs and content of drug education are taken at local level. (ANI)
