CHA to host cannabis talk in Carp

CARP – Join Carp Health Access (CHA) for a frank talk on the implications of the legalization of marijuana from subject matter experts, May 25.

“CHA is thrilled to present the next event in our Community Education Series,” the health organization released in a statement. “Medical marijuana has been legal in Canada for several years. Recreational cannabis just received the green light. Later this year you may find it added to foods and drinks.”

The CHA has put together a presentation called The Highs and Lows of Cannabis to be held at the West Carleton Amateur Sports Club at W. Erskine Johnston Arena on Saturday, May 25 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

“Is cannabis safe to consume? Where can I buy it? What are the legal implications? Where can I find reliable answers to my questions?,” the CHA said. “We’ve put together a panel of experts who will present information, answer your questions, and help you make informed decisions.”

Experts include Sylvia Chan – West Carleton Family Health Team, Mark Asfar – Momentum Law, Michelle Davis – Canopy Growth,Rebecca Trueman – Lifted Spirits and representatives from Ottawa Public Health and the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre.

Refreshments and time for further one-on-one questions and networking will follow the presentation. Ample free parking is available and this event is wheelchair accessible. Attendance is free but seats are limited – registration is required to attend. This event is open to those 19 years and older.
