Important Note: The Partnership uses the term cannabis to refer to the plant and all types of derived products such as—vape cartridges, edibles, smokable “weed” or “pot”, oils and tinctures. We are not using the term marijuana on most of our resources because this term has a complicated past that was slanderous towards certain people. It is, however, important that the language we use in some instances is accessible to the audience that we are trying to reach and we understand that marijuana is a commonly utilized term for products that contain the form of THC (Delta 9) that provides a euphoric affect or intoxication.
Understanding the facts about cannabis is critical to being able to talk to our loved ones about the risks and harms associated with cannabis use. Learn more about cannabis use in New Hampshire and what you can do to keep you, your family members, and your friends safe.
