Marijuana continues to be one of the most prevalent substances of abuse among our youth. While there
are many different modes of use, the practice of using vaping devices to consume marijuana products is
becoming increasingly widespread among youth. Vaping delivers greater amounts of THC, the primary
intoxicant in marijuana which increases the risk of adverse health problems, especially for our youth
whose brains are still developing. Officer Andre O’Conner a Licensed Drug Recognition Expert with the
Lincoln Police Department and previous School Resource Officer will discuss:
• Delta-8 THC
• Marijuana Concentrates
• Marijuana Vaping
• The adverse mental and physical health effects of high-potency marijuana concentrates on youth
• The difference between a nicotine vape pen and a marijuana concentrate pen
