Tips for graduating high schoolers

Grad season is fast approaching, and health authorities want teens to have fun, but be safe.

Dr Richard Stanwick says it's really important to emphasize that underage drinking is illegal, as is driving after drinking or smoking cannabis.

Stanwick says, "If you are going to have a beverage of any sort, keep an eye on it. There's always the chance that somebody will spike it with something. The other emerging thing is with cannabis being made legal this year, we are getting stories of people having a drink or two and then smoking marijuana. Under those circumstances, you may not have the best result."

Stanwick adds that students should be practicing safe sex, know consent must be given, and that no means no.

He says graduation should be unforgetable for all the right reasons.
