Educational Toolkit for A NIGHT IN JAIL

Written by Heidi A. Swan and Dr. Christine L. Miller

Because these risks are most pronounced for youth, it is crucial parents, educators and
especially, teenagers, understand the science.

…”With A Night In Jail and this Toolkit, we want to help make it common knowledge that
marijuana use, especially teen use, raises the risk for a suite of mental illnesses…some of
which may never go away.
To protect the brains of our youth, let’s spread this information far and wide.

-Heidi A. Swan
