Health Unit Seeking Public Input On Marijuana

Posted on Friday, September 29, 2017 07:41 AM

The Northwestern Health Unit wants to hear your thoughts and opinions on the legalization of cannabis.

Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kit Young-Hoon says they have some obvious concerns.

"We know that there are potential health harms from cannabis such as the impacts on brain development.  There's also the potential for motor vehicle accidents."

The Health Unit has established an online survey and an online panel discussion as a way of gathering comment.

Young-Hoon says the survey and panel will be a helpful tool to both learn from the public and educate as well.

The survey can also be found at any area Health Unit office.
