CTI LAUNCHES THC/DUI EDUCATION CAMPAIGN

CTI is launching a THC/DUI awareness campaign based on fact, not fear. The campaign is inpired by the FDA warning for Marinol (synthetic THC). The CTI THC/DUI awareness campaign can be summed up with these phrases, "Use cannabis responsibly. If you medicate, then wait." The length of time a patient will have to wait after they medicate depends on many factors. But once a patient gets used to the effects of THC, they are likely to be able to drive safely.

This campaign, and the rationale behind it, are summarized in the letter written by CTI to the Drug Policy Task Force regarding THC/DUI.

CTI THC/DUI CAMPAIGN NEEDS DONATIONS, SPONSORS, and VOLUNTEERS
CTI needs your support to help promote this campaign. The Medical Marijuana Industry Group, the lobbying group that supported restrictive regulations (HB 10-1284 and HB11-1043) on the patients and industry, is supporting the CDOT campaign, which says "If you medicate, don't drive." We believe the CDOT/MMIG campaign is too simplistic and provides no real education. Many feel that CDOT/MMIG campaign is belittling to patients who have driven safely while using cannabis for years. The CDOT/MMIG campaign also falls far short of providing the education needed so that medical cannabis patients can use cannabis responsibly while remaining safe from the law.
