On March 2nd, the FRCOG hosted a meeting between local prevention coalitions from across Western Massachusetts with Commissioners Stebbins and Roy from the Cannabis Control Commission.   The coalitions (including our own local Communities That Care and Greenfield 4SC Coalitions) have been meeting to share concerns about cannabis advertising, especially billboards, and their impact on youth perception of harm of cannabis use, as well as concerns about the upcoming rollout of social consumption cafes.
