Childcare may be available.
On the board of the Illinois Society forAddiction Medicine
Dr.Bertino comes highly recommended by a number of people in our congregation whohave heard his message regarding the commercialization of marijuana.
Commercialization allowsand encourages marketing of marijuana especially to youth and teens in the formof candy and gummies and other tempting treats.
Whetheryou are a young person, a parent or a grandparent you will find information inDr. Bertino’s presentation that will help you make informed decisions aboutyour own individual choices, regarding marijuana whether for medical use orrecreation. And, you will gain insight into the implications of public policychoices being considered in our State.
I encourage you to come asfamilies. I think you will leave with information that will help you havenon-emotional conversations about choices all of us will be facing here inIllinois.
Dr. Bertino will help usunderstand the medical risks, the social implications and the financial impactof commercializing the use of marijuana.
He assures me that theseminar is suitable for all age groups. He will have a 30-35 minutepresentation and then time for questions and discussion.
We promise a 12:30dismissal so you can all get home in time for your Sunday afternoon naps!!
