Education and outreach related to Michigan’s medical marijuana program are among the objectives of a nearly $44,000 state grant provided to Bay County’s  Health Department.

Health Director Joel Strasz  says information will be aimed primarily at adults, but
also school age groups as well. Strasz warned that today’s pot is far more potent than the marijuana grown 20 or 30  years ago. That means people need to be careful even if
they’re smoking to relieve pain or for other medically related purposes.
