Marijuana Health & Safety Line Now Available

June 12, 2017

Denver Health’s Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center and Denver Environmental Health have launched the Marijuana Health & Safety Line to help address questions from public health professionals, marijuana product consumers and marijuana industry professionals.

The 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week line can be accessed by calling 877-741-3777.

The line connects callers with pharmacists, nurses and toxicology experts at Denver Health’s Rocky Mountain Poison and Drug Center. These medical experts can answer questions about occupational safety hazards for marijuana industry workers as well as questions about pesticides, toxins, additives, ingredients and contaminants in marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) products. Callers can also contact the line regarding safe-use concerns, such as those surrounding potentially tampered with packaging or serving sizes.

The Marijuana Health & Safety Line is a three-month pilot project, funded by the City and County of Denver, that may be extended. It gives public health professionals an additional resource to help them stay in line with technology advances in the marijuana industry.

“We are eager to see a resource for reliable information to both consumers and industry employees, and we are excited that this resource may yield data and insights about the health impacts of cannabis consumption and occupational exposure,” said Danica Lee, Director of the Public Health Inspections Division at Denver Environmental Health.

The line is not meant for anyone experiencing life-threatening emergencies and callers requiring immediate medical assistance will be directed to 911 operators immediately. Additionally, the line is not meant for use as a directory of Denver marijuana businesses and will not be useful for anyone seeking information about business locations, hours of operation and product pricing.
