Re Ottawa Awards Grants To Study Cannabis-Use Effects (Jan. 25)

As a grandparent, I am deeply concerned by the prospect of children
accidentally ingesting edible marijuana products.

It is routine for children to share treats from home at school. But
what if those treats accidentally contain marijuana?

What about the little ones who reach up to the counter for
marijuana-laced candy or baked goods that parents or caregivers may
have left out?

We need to be very conscious of potential tragedies before we go ahead
with the legalization of marijuana. Do we need a mass public education
program? I am angry enough to start a group called GRAM -
Grandmothers/Grandfathers Against Marijuana.
