NDA launches campaign to educate public about edibles

The Nevada Dispensary Association (NDA) has launched a new website, goodtoknownv.com, to educate Nevadans and tourists on the state’s new recreational marijuana law. “We are heeding the advice of Colorado lawmakers and regulators to be proactive about public awareness and education on responsible consumption of marijuana,” said NDA Executive Director Riana Durrett. 

To aid in the education process, the NDA announced the launch of the “Good to Know” Nevada information campaign, which seeks to provide useful facts to tourists and Nevadans on subjects ranging from edible safety to youth prevention. Retailers will also find a copy of the written notification (updated as of July 1, 2017) that must be distributed to customers who purchase product.
