With a neurodivergent lens over the whole conversation, Paul and Lou explore the risk taking behaviour of our teens. They discuss alcohol, weed, vaping and cocaine in detail and then go on to focus on the Year 9s, sleep overs and the inevitable driving risks and drug testing that can get, especially those taking ADHD medications in hot water. Finally they finish with an often neglected topic around drug interactions, especially relevant to youth taking ADHD medications, anti-depressants and anti-psychotics. It's a very long episode but every word is an eye opener.
