Find out how gunja can affect your rural and urban community by watching the Cannabis Yarns video series. The developers of this video series worked with two Aboriginal communities to help local people record their stories about gunja.

The hip hop video Yarndi or my Girlfriend was developed by Wadja Wadja High School and they won a national music competition held by The National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre. The lyrics are about how gunja can affect you, your friends, family and community.
