"I'm proud of all the work Clarion and its partners have put into resurrecting such a breathtaking piece of automotive history.

Caron Treatment Centers Survey, conducted by Harris Poll, finds 26 Percent of Parents Believe It's Okay to Use Marijuana Recreationally with Their Adult Children

01 01 1970

"Parents are more comfortable smoking marijuana with their young adult children than smoking a cigarette," said Dr. Joseph Garbely, Caron's Medical Director. "Many people don't realize that marijuana today is radically more potent than it was years ago and can have a significant impact on the developing brain. Parents who didn't experience consequences from prior use may not be aware of the difference. That creates misperceptions and a dangerously permissive message to their children." The survey revealed that approximately 13 percent of adults say it's OK for teenagers to occasionally use prescribed painkillers, despite that opioids, even when used as prescribed can cause significant, permanent changes to the developing brain.  This finding raises significant concerns – especially as the United States grapples with a raging opioid epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,...
