NACCHO Sharing Session: Edible Marijuana
June 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
NACCHO will host an online sharing session discussing recreational edible marijuana on June 20 from 1-2pm ET. With the legalization of recreational marijuana in states across the country, many public health professionals now face new health concerns and issues in their communities.
The first presentation will focus on the changing state regulations and discuss the governmental entities involved in regulating edible marijuana. In the second presentation, the Denver Department of Environmental Health will discuss the food safety-related issues surrounding edible marijuana in their community. Participants are encouraged to share their own challenges, successes, and to ask questions during the discussion/Q&A portion of the presentation. Click here to register for the sharing session.
