Dear Principal


Vancouver’s 4/20 event (the so-called cannabis protest day) is often a concern for parents and an attraction for some students. Each year, thousands of people attended the event where hundreds of vendors were selling cannabis to be smoked and cannabis edibles such as brownies, cakes, freezies, and other sweets.


Again this year, 4/20 will happen at Sunset Beach in Vancouver.  Unfortunately, minors will not be excluded from the site.


Following 4/20 each year, there are many visits to the Emergency Room at St. Paul’s Hospital and first aid stations because of cannabis intoxication. Most cannabis overdoses are among youth who have consumed edible forms of cannabis. Edible cannabis can take several hours to have effect. It is very easy to take too much by accident.


Cannabis overdoses are distressing and unpleasant experiences.


Scientific evidence shows that regular use of cannabis in the adolescent years negatively affects brain development as well as social and emotional development, both of which can have long-lasting effects.  Two of the primary goals of the legalization of cannabis are to limit youth access and to protect young people from promotion or enticements to use. To limit use among youth, even after legalization, cannabis will only be available to adults. We have prepared a fact sheet for students. Please feel free to distribute it to teachers, parents, and students on our behalf.


Thank you,


Dr. Réka Gustafson

Medical Health Officer and School Health Officer
