What are the risks of recreational marijuana use versus the benefits of prescribed medical marijuana? And how can they affect mental well being? A community forum on the topic will be held Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Eveleth Auditorium, located at 421 Jackson Street in Eveleth.
The forum, Marijuana and Mental Health Community Solutions, will include presenters from Leafline Labs, a medical cannibis provider, and Lakeview Behavioral Health and Arrowhead Center. There will also be a panel discussion featuring a police officer, probation officer, Drug Court attorney and social worker.
The event is free and open to the public, and will begin with a light dinner and resource fair at 4 p.m., followed by presentations and a panel discussion at 4:30 p.m.
The forum is presented by St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services, with support from Snickers Pizza, J&T Sales and Essentia Health.
