A new film exploring Cannabis and young people has been produced by a Northamptonshire based charity to help raise awareness.

CAN, part of Recovery Focus, has teamed up with Birmingham based Urban Head to produce the short video to highlight the potential harms of drugs and the impact they can have on young people.

Ali Mills, service manager of Ngagae, the young people’s team at CAN, said:

“The aim of our film is to raise awareness about Cannabis and the issues it creates for young people.

“Lots of young people know drug users, but feel it is recreational despite seeing the impact it can have on people.”

The film focuses on a young couples relationship and recreational use of Cannabis. The film offers a realistic view of the addictive nature of Cannabis as we see recreational use develop into addiction.

The film is available on YouTube and can be viewed here:

Young people who access the Ngage service played a key role in producing the film from scriptwriting to editing gaining hands on experience of film production.
