Site Tour Opportunity for PHNAC Members

With the legalization of marijuana in Colorado, public health must stay up to date with this trend and its implications for the public’s health. In order to learn more about the marijuana industry, an onsite tour of a grow facility in Denver is being offered to PHNAC members and (potentially, if space allows) others who might be interested in this activity. Please RSVP promptly as the tour will be limited to 30 persons.
