With the legal sale of cannabis for adult use expected to begin within a few months, the state is moving forward on potential health and safety concerns with a campaign around safe consumption.
Today, Governor Ned Lamont announced the launch of an education campaign aimed at “promoting responsible adult use of cannabis,” according to the state. The campaign contains a range of information on how people can safely store and dispose of cannabis and cannabis waste and what to do if someone accidentally ingests cannabis.
By state, the resources included in the campaign were created by the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection in conjunction with the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
Videos, brochures, flyers, and social media graphics included with the campaign are available online at ct.gov/cannabis.
The Department of Consumer Protection said it plans to add more content to the campaign that relates to other health and safety topics related to cannabis in the future. Furthermore, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services will be launching a multimedia campaign this fall to educate the public about state laws relating to cannabis.
