Illinois Launches Health & Safety Campaign for Marijuana Users

NILES (AP) – Illinois officials launched a new statewide campaign this week focused on health and safety information for people who use marijuana.

The campaign is centered around a new website, LetsTalkCannabisIL.com, and advertisements via social media, digital media and radio.

The Illinois Department of Human Services developed the campaign with Prevention First, a nonprofit that offers substance use prevention services and Rescue, a communications agency.

Illinois began broadly allowing the sale and use of cannabis products by adults in January, becoming the 11th state with a similar approach to the drug that remains federally illegal.
