Media Release - Public Health is asking for input on the impact of legal cannabis

June 12, 2018: This week, Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health is encouraging members of the public to take a short, anonymous online survey about individual cannabis use and the potential impact of legalization on themselves, their family and their community. The survey is open to people whether they have used cannabis or not.  

“Public Health wants to know what are the local attitudes toward cannabis use, where are the information gaps and how do people plan to approach the legal use of a once-banned drug?” says Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical officer of Health and CEO of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health. “Our role is to understand what is happening in the community and what residents need to make healthy lifestyle choices.”

The survey can be found at Public Health invites anyone 16 years of age or older in Wellington County, Dufferin County or the City of Guelph to take the survey about their knowledge of, and their attitude toward, legalized cannabis. Anyone who fills the survey out by June 30 is eligible to win one of five $100 gift cards.
