The Odd Squad Production Society tackled two of the biggest drug issues facing youth today at a conference in Vancouver October 19 – marijuana and fentanyl.

“The risks of marijuana aren’t any different today than they were before the drug was legalized,” said Mark Steinkampf – a founding member of the 21-year-old non-profit organization and a sergeant with the Vancouver Police Department. “As a plus-50 male who grew up in the 70s, 80s, and 90s I’ve seen a lot of people consume marijuana. As an adult, when your mind is fully formed and you know where you’re at, I don’t have a big issue with it. But don’t tell me and don’t tell parents its okay for kids to consume. The human brain doesn’t finish developing until the mid -20s.”
