Description

This guideline is a general set of recommendations which aim to help people guide someone with a cannabis use problem.

The guidelines will help users to recognise if someone they know is developing a cannabis use problem, give tips on approaching someone with a concern, as well as supporting and providing information, and guiding the person to professional help.

The guidelines were funded by the Australian Government, and based on the expert recommendations of panels of consumers, carers and clinicians from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the USA, and the UK about how to help someone who may have a cannabis use problem.
