    Perfect for ages 7 and above

    Are you looking for an educational parent-child activity?

    Check out "Be Aware. Be Wise. Think Twice", a light-hearted 2-minute video on how our young responded spontaneously when they were told the gummies they had might actually be 'cannabis edibles'. The video serves as a cautionary message to parents to stay vigilant against such "edibles", and is an excellent resource to educate our children and teens on the dangers of drugs.

     

    Take a shot at this questionnaire too to see if you have taken away the important messages from this video. 10 participants who submit the questionnaire before 28 Jun (2359 hours) will stand to win a limited edition DrugFreeSG goodie bag comprising a tote bag, a drink holder, a thumb drive and a bear figurine.
