Cannabis campaign focuses on harm-reduction tools for Inuit – Nunatsiaq News

A new Inuit-focused campaign is sharing information about cannabis use in an effort to educate users and reduce possible harms.

Launched on Nov. 29, Let’s Talk about Ujarak: A Cannabis Harm Reduction Toolkit is part of a larger project funded by Health Canada that aims to help Inuit youth and families better understand the potential impacts of cannabis use.

The campaign is spearheaded by Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada, the national representative organization of Inuit women in the country.
