THINGS TO know
The P.E.I. government has created a new campaign “Just the Facts” (www.justthefactspei.ca) to bring Islanders information on the laws around cannabis, health risks, responsible use, how to talk to youth, and dangers of driving impaired. The campaign includes social media messages (using #justthefactspei), radio, newspaper, digital advertisements, posters, brochures, videos, and more, that will work to direct the public back to the website. “Cannabis will soon be legal, so we will make sure Islanders have the information they need to make a fully informed choice,” said Finance Minister Heath MacDonald. Recreational cannabis will become legal across Canada on Oct. 17.
