Organigram is teaming up with Mount Allison University to help students make informed choices about cannabis and to support harms-reduction education in preparation for the legalization of cannabis on October 17.
A working group of students and staff is leading the initiative, with support from Organigram.
The funding will also help fund educational outreach campaigns targeted at key areas including mental health and addictions.
The initiative supports the Canadian government’s goals in legalizing the adult-use, recreational cannabis market,” says Greg Engel, CEO, Organigram.
“Most important among these goals is the protection of our youth,” he said.
Organigram’s primary facility is located in Moncton, New Brunswick. The company has developed a portfolio of brands including The Edison Cannabis Company, Ankr Organics and Trailer Park Buds.
