We’re talking about weed – new cannabis information campaign launched!
Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health has launched a cannabis information campaign to provide youth and adults with information about the health effects of cannabis use, ways to reduce health risks, and links to local resources and support. This campaign features a series of short videos, including one for parents, which encourages parents to talk to their kids about cannabis. More information for parents can be found on our website: www.talkingaboutweed.ca.
