Connecticut launches responsible cannabis use campaign
After legalizing recreational cannabis in 2021 the state of Connecticut has now launched a public awareness campaign to educate the public about responsible cannabis use. Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont announced the campaign on Tuesday. This project is made possible by a collaboration between Connecticut’s consumer protection and public health agencies. The materials include information that is designed to help individuals handle situations such as accidental cannabis ingestion by children or pets. Other topics include proper disposal of cannabis and tips on storing marijuana.
According to the press release Connecticut is asking business owners, medical organizations, community health programs, and others to share these materials to help promote safe and responsible cannabis practices in their communities. There are videos, brochures, flyers, and social media graphics for each of the three topics available online. This campaign is similar to the public awareness campaign that Massachusetts launched after legalizing adult-use cannabis called “More about Marijuana.”
