Smart Approaches to Marijuana
A great opportunity coming to Cedar Rapids (afternoon) and Anamosa (evening) on Tuesday, April 1. The afternoon training will be at Kirkwood Community College on the 3rd floor of Iowa Hall in Cedar Rapids from 3:15 - 4:45 pm. For more information or to register for the afternoon event click here. The evening event will be held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa from 7-8:30 pm. For more information or to register for the evening event click here.
Dr. Kevin Sabet, Director of the Drug Policy Institute at the University of Florida, will be coming to share information with our communities on “Smart Approaches to Marijuana”. His message will help participants:
• Discover a “Smart Approach to Marijuana” that neither legalizes, nor demonizes, marijuana.
• Have an honest conversation about reducing unintended consequences of current marijuana policies, such as lifelong stigma due to arrest.
• Identify smart policies that decrease marijuana use while promoting research on marijuana in order to obtain FDA-approved, pharmacy-dispensed, cannabis-based medications.
Pre-registration for this training is currently limited to select audiences including Linn, Jones, and Benton residents, but will be open to the rest of the state on February 18.
Also, ecstasy, molly, dragonfly, smiles, meow meow are some of the names given to drugs that are at least initially seen as safe. They have been sold on line and by local dealers. They come in powder, pill (variety of colors and some have a symbol), and capsule (green, clear, white). They are all dangerous!
