Emerging Trend: Weed Light - AKA Delta 8

Wednesday, July 14th
10:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Did you know that Delta 8 may be in a store near you? This session is an opportunity to learn about Delta 8, which is often marketed as "weed light" and is widely available in many states, and is growing in popularity with youth. During this session, participants will be able to see a variety of products that were purchased legally in corner stores and vape shops as well as learn about the chemical make up of Delta 8, and its impact on youth. The session will also provide participants with an environmental scan tool that can be used in their own community to engage their coalition members in getting a lay of the local landscape.

At the end of the training session, the participants will be able to: 

1. Learn about Delta 8 and its chemical make up and effects on the body
2. Examine the wide variety of products available and how they are ingested
3. Discuss how to engage their coalition members in assessing the local landscape
