Leaders of Tomorrow is celebrating its 8th Annual Essay Writing Contest with a new introductory title:

What is Cannabis?

Should it be legalized for medical and recreational use?

What impact will it have on adults, adolescents and the society as a whole?
Will its legalization affect law enforcement, road safety and public health?

Cannabis has been a hot topic in the Canadian parliament for a number of months now. There is a possibility that it may be legalized for medical and recreational use by July 2018. How will it affect Canada socially, economically and politically? Will it compound the problems of drugs and alcohol that our society is already facing now? Can a good legislation prevent the country from sliding down this slippery slope?

School principals and/or teachers are encouraged to request the Peel Regional Police or an authoritative speaker to do a presentation on the topic of Cannabis at your school. Not only will the students learn about marijuana, but will also find good material for the essay writing contest. Leaders of Tomorrow will gladly co-ordinate with you to set up a date and time for a presentation. Early booking is advisable to secure your preferred date. To book a presentation, email pierre@leadersoftomorrow.ca.
