My friend is using cannabis - is there anything I can do?
Talking to them is a good place to start. But be careful how you do this as drugs can be a sensitive topic to bring up.
Also, you may want to let them know about the risks of using cannabis:
- You can become psychologically dependent
- It can lead to isolation and a lack of motivation
- Its illegal and you risk getting in trouble with the law
A good way to phrase the info above could be, 'Did you know that...' It may be helpful to ask what your friend might want to change or to achieve in their life – and explore with them if changing their cannabis use might have a role in this. If you don't feel comfortable talking to them, then perhaps encourage them to call FRANK or visit this site.
