Tuesday, June 22
1 PM – 2 PM EDT
The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the National Environmental Health Association, with the support of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are pleased to host an online sharing session on edible marijuana. With the legalization of recreational marijuana in states across the country, many public health professionals now face new health concerns and issues in their communities.
The sharing session will feature presentations from the Colorado Integrated Food Safety Center of Excellence, the Colorado Marijuana Enforcement Division, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment about the potential associated food safety hazards. Participants will hear about edible marijuana-associated illness outbreaks and other contamination events. Participants will also learn about steps being taken in Colorado to ensure the safe production and packaging of edible marijuana, including laboratory testing practices and the roles and responsibilities of different agencies.
Participants are encouraged to share their own challenges, successes, and to ask questions during the discussion and Q&A portion of the presentation!
