“More About Marijuana” Campaign Highlights Risks of Consuming Illicit Vaping Products

Just in time for those who may recognize April 20, the Cannabis Control Commission (Commission) is reminding patients and consumers that untested, unregulated marijuana vaping products can pose serious risks as part of the agency’s ongoing award-winning public awareness campaign, “More About Marijuana.”

Through a series of animated videos spanning 15 to roughly 90 seconds long, the latest campaign segment highlights that devices used to vaporize flower and concentrate may often be the products of choice for Massachusetts residents, but there are still many unknowns about their health effects.

“We know patients and consumers are vaping, but the recent public health emergency in the United States demonstrates there is still much we all need to learn about the impacts, especially in the midst of a pandemic,” said Commissioner Jennifer Flanagan, public health appointee to the agency. “‘More About Marijuana’ encourages patients and consumers to opt for tested, regulated options if they do choose to vape cannabis, and to learn as much as they can about any substance before they put it in their bodies.”
