A University of Saskatchewan researcher worries that the public discussion around the legalization of marijuana is too focused and ignores the potential health risks for young people. (David Donnelly/CBC) A University of Saskatchewan researcher thinks there is something important missing in the public dialogue leading up to the legalization of marijuana in Canada. Michael Szafron is worried the risks are being glossed over. ¬†¬† “It may look safe and that there are no downsides to using it,” he told CBC Radio’s Saskatoon Morning. Szafron, an assistant professor at the U of S School of Public Health, recently served as the principal¬†investigator on a research project to explore some of the risk factors. He is presenting his findings in a speech on the Saskatoon campus Tuesday. Legal pot poses risks too, warns U of S researcher
