Monroe County’s Substance Abuse is working with local high schools to promote a message about marijuana dangers.
An awareness campaign about the dangers of marijuana edibles and higher, threatening levels of THC in pot will be launched in October in virtually all Monroe County high schools by student teams in each school district.
Armed with funding from Community Mental Health Partnership of Southeast Michigan, the Monroe County Substance Abuse Coalition is leading the effort to help students and parents be better informed about marijuana abuse and misuse and trendy drugs.
“There is so much misinformation out there about marijuana,” said Jodi Brooks, the coalition’s liaison with Student Prevention Leadership Teams at each school. “The reality is there are dangers with eating edibles and the amount of THC levels are steadily rising. That’s not good for our youth.”
