Higher Education: Weeding Through the Cannabis Stigma

Thursday, May 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Members & guests- free! Chicago Area Villages: An Aging Brain and Body Program, in partnership with Bonfire Media Group

Join us for an enlightening workshop aimed at fostering informed conversations about cannabis within our communities. Led by Lauryn Wyatt, a seasoned communications strategist dedicated to cannabis education, this event aims to illuminate the historical injustices of prohibition while empowering our communities to make informed choices regarding cannabis use.

We’ll delve into crucial topics such as Illinois’ qualifying conditions, navigating the process of obtaining a medical card, understanding local laws and federal regulations, and addressing common risks and concerns. Our objectives go beyond mere education; we strive to promote health equity, social and economic justice, and mitigate potential harm by shedding light on the realities of cannabis.

Don’t miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights, dispel myths, and engage in meaningful dialogue about cannabis. Let’s work together to create a more informed and empowered community.
