Many Canadians are celebrating today as licensed cannabis stores across Canada open their doors to the public. Recreational cannabis use is now legal, but not without restrictions and potential danger to those who misuse it. Perhaps more than ever we need cannabis awareness – not only of the laws surrounding it, but also the health effects and risks it presents.
The following links provide legal information about the use of cannabis:
- Cannabis on Campus Red River College’s policies on recreational cannabis and impairment
- Cannabis in Manitoba Provincial Cannabis laws and updates from the Government of Manitoba
- Cannabis in Canada Health effects and risks, laws and regulations, and more from the Government of Canada
- Liquor, Gaming & Cannabis Authority of Manitoba Purchasing, licensing and legal information about cannabis in the province
The Risks: Watch and Learn
The Cannabis Awareness Video Collection – now on display at AV Services, NDC Library – will open your eyes with scientific facts and personal stories related to cannabis use. All staff and students at the College have access to the video collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
