Marijuana Industry Group Launches New Colorado Marijuana Awareness Campaign

In 2010, the Marijuana Industry Group (MIG) emerged as a voice for marijuana business owners and advocates. Now, in its latest initiative, MIG has unveiled a comprehensive public awareness campaign focused on promoting safe and responsible marijuana consumption. The campaign aims to reach a broad audience through targeted ads in marijuana-related publications and general media. With three key messages, the campaign addresses critical issues surrounding marijuana use.

  1. Encouraging Safe Dosing Across Various Consumption Methods

One of the central pillars of MIG’s campaign is the promotion of safe dosing practices for individuals who smoke marijuana, as well as those who prefer alternative consumption methods such as edibles, waxes, and concentrates. Since the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, there has been a noticeable uptick in emergency room visits attributed to excessive marijuana consumption. MIG seeks to counteract this trend by encouraging users to be mindful of their dosages, fostering a culture of moderation and responsibility within the marijuana community.

The organization recognizes the diverse ways in which individuals choose to consume marijuana and underscores the importance of understanding the potency and potential effects of different products. By educating users on responsible dosing practices, MIG aims to reduce the incidence of adverse reactions and emergency room visits associated with excessive marijuana consumption.

  1. Deterrence from Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

A second crucial message within MIG’s campaign revolves around the legal and safety implications of driving under the influence of marijuana, commonly referred to as DUI-D (Driving Under the Influence of Drugs). In Colorado, where MIG is actively engaged, DUI-D is a crime. The organization emphasizes the importance of responsible behavior, urging individuals to refrain from getting behind the wheel after consuming marijuana.

Through its participation in the Colorado Task Force for Drunk and Impaired Driving, MIG is actively involved in shaping policies and initiatives to curb impaired driving incidents. By aligning with law enforcement and regulatory bodies, MIG aims to reinforce the societal expectation of responsible cannabis use, fostering a safer environment for users and the broader community.

  1. Safeguarding Marijuana from Children

A third critical aspect of MIG’s campaign centers on protecting children from accidental exposure to marijuana products. MIG advocates for storing marijuana in secure containers, especially edibles that often resemble common treats appealing to children. By emphasizing the importance of responsible storage, MIG seeks to prevent unintentional ingestion by curious children, contributing to overall child safety.

Recognizing the need for parental responsibility, MIG’s campaign underscores the importance of keeping marijuana products out of reach and sight, reducing the likelihood of accidental consumption. The organization aligns with the broader community in prioritizing child safety while acknowledging the evolving landscape of legalized marijuana.

MIG’s commitment to promoting safe marijuana consumption extends beyond its recent campaign. The organization has actively contributed to various awareness initiatives, including partnering with the Colorado Department of Transportation’s “Drive High Get a DUI” campaign and the “Good to Know” campaign by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment. By collaborating with other entities, MIG amplifies its impact, reinforcing a collective effort to educate the public on responsible marijuana use.

In the wake of evolving attitudes towards marijuana legalization, the Marijuana Industry Group’s recent launch of a new campaign for safe consumption marks a pivotal moment in shaping responsible practices within the cannabis industry.
