New Yorkers are learning more about the state's Cannabis Law today.
The state's Office of Cannabis Management launched its first public health campaign on cannabis. Information on who can consume cannabis, where they can consume it and how to consume it safely is all included.
The Cannabis Conversations campaign provides parents and caregivers with tools to protect the youth. In addition, it brings awareness of the risks of driving while impaired by cannabis. The campaign's focus is to keep New Yorkers safe, healthy and informed as the new cannabis industry develops.
"With the 'Cannabis Conversations' campaign, we're following through on our commitment to provide New Yorkers with the information they need to safely navigate the new Cannabis Law," Governor Kathy Hochul says. "Education is the best tool to keep New Yorkers healthy as we continue to ramp up this safe, inclusive, and equitable industry."
