Location: Cheshire
Campaign: To encourage young people to steer clear of cannabis

I started smoking cannabis when I was 11 years old. 

 

Peer pressure definitely played a role, because people I knew were using it, so I thought I’d give it a try too.

 

At first it was quite normal because you’re with friends having a good time, but I never knew what it would turn me into.

 

I became a recluse, extremely paranoid and would get severe panic attacks.

 

It’s my feeling that a lot of young people who take cannabis think it’s nothing major, but don't realise that it can have devastating consequences.

 

I have worked with Fixers to produce a short film showing the dangers of taking cannabis.

 

As fun as it may look to some, it’s just not worth the risk. So don’t ruin your life!

A special thank you to the following actors for taking part in the film:

 

Michael Leonard

Naomi Albans

Philippa Lyall

Tommy Egan
