Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Youth and Stigma (2007) Youth Research opportunity

Factsheets on youth and experiences of Stigma (2007)

The AHS III has been included in an international study exploring enacted stigma and its link to drug abuse and risky sexual behaviours.
The purpose of the study is to explore the behaviors and environments in schools that target teens and tell them they are stigmatized.
This study is taking place in 3 different countries (Canada, New Zealand, and the US) and looks at three separate ethnic groups: indigenous youth, Asian-heritage youth, and European-heritage youth in each of the countries. Results for BC are now available in 6 factsheets.

Youth Job Opportunity

As part of ensuring the findings of the stigma project are disseminated to youth, McCreary is currently looking to recruit youth facilitators of Aboriginal or Asian heritage, with a strong interest in LGBTQ issues, to help develop and facilitate a series of workshops. These highly interactive workshops will engage youth in discussing what schools, communities and other youth can do to increase safety and decrease health issues for stigmatized youth.
If you would like more information please contact David at david@mcs.bc.ca .
