Marijuana Distribution Log
Although DHS has done a great job in reducing the amount of teen smokers, more and more teens are getting a wrong idea that Tobacco is bad for you but Marijuana is ok. Can the ad be adjusted? Also, people (teens included) are getting marijuana from those who have the marijuana card. Shouldn't there be some type of log a marijuana card holder submit to the government with the marijuana they purchase to ensure that it is not overly distributed? I imagine if we can do it with Sudafed, we should be able to do the same with marijuana.
Thanks for your ideas. The law that governs the use of medical marijuana has some strict ties to it. DHS is working to ensure that we track and enforce those that are in there. However, there is not really anything we can do once the marijuana is in a cardholder’s hands. All cardholders promise not to divert to someone who is not a Cardholder, but the penalty is losing the card if we learn of the diversion.
On the other hand, we are working through our Behavioral Health Services arm to reduce substance use and abuse. Teens should not be getting the messafe from ADHS that non-medical use of marijuana is okay.
