The annual 4/20 marijuana/cannabis event is approaching. If you choose to use, we urge you to follow these tips:
Wait at least 10 minutes to feel the effect of inhaled cannabis and at least one hour to feel the effects of edible cannabis products.
Avoid driving 3 hours after inhaling or 6 hours after ingesting. Consuming cannabis may impair coordination and reaction time.
Avoid use under age 25 to reduce risk of these lasting, negative brain effects.
Cannabis should be kept out of reach of infants, children and pets to avoid accidental poisonings
Avoid cannabis if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or breastfeeding
If you have had too much cannabis, try to remain calm, stay hydrated, and eat something. Stay with friends in a safe place. The effects will wear off.
