Review: Factual information and strategies shared by the USA peak body for paediatricians. Targeted towards parents and young people, with the aim to limit potential harm from the use of alcohol and other drugs. There are some excellent question ideas for parents who are concerned their child might be experimenting with alcohol or other legal or illegal drugs or substances. The sections on e-cigarettes and the misuse of prescription medications provide interesting reading for parents. So too, the comments on keeping children safe from the accidental consumption of edible marijuana products - an unexpected concern for US states where cannabis and cannabis products can be sold legally.
