The Other Side of Cannabis, is an independent film project created to reach out to youth, parents, educators, and concerned community members to bring attention to the negative effects of marijuana on adolescents, teenagers and young adults whose brains are still forming. In order to make an informed decision to use marijuana, it is important to know the potential risks. This film is not about legalization nor medicinal treatments. The message that marijuana is safe, natural and harmless as a recreational substance must be weighed against the evidence of associated risks as presented by users and family members concerned about some of the effects—teen dependence, depression and psychosis.

This film is appropriate for ages 12 and up. Middle school children should be accompanied by an adult for followup discussion.

More information:

This 2016 film and presentation series is organized by Central Vermont New Directions Coalition, working with community partners, the Vermont Department of Health, Washington County Youth Service Bureau and the statewide organization Prevention Works!VT, to educate the community about current substance abuse issues, the impact, and resources for help.

Event is free and open to the public. Donations accepted.

Drop Off and Pick Up:  As MSMS is a walking school I encourage you to coordinate with other families “walking groups” for your children.  It is great exercise and social time plus children will be walking with peers and not alone.  For those of you who will be driving your child to and from school, please note these three-drop off/pick up options.


1.  Pull into the main parking lot and continue through as you loop to the right back toward Main Street.

2.  Turn onto Franklin Street, drop your child off either before the parking lot or after where the side walks are, then continue to Cross Street then right onto North Street back to Main Street.  

3.  Drop off on the sidewalks on Main Street.  


All students being dropped off or picked on the opposite side of Main Street from the school must cross at the cross walk.  Please help us keep students safe and do not allow your child to cross at any other location.  There will be volunteers the first two weeks of school assisting at each of these locations.
