What should I do to keep children and pets safe?

Store all cannabis products in a locked area. Make sure children cannot see or reach the locked area. Keep cannabis in child-resistant packaging from the store. Keep cannabis out of reach of pets too. Cannabis affects children more strongly than adults. Children are at higher risk for cannabis poisoning, especially from edibles. If you think a child may have ingested cannabis, call the Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222. If you think a child needs immediate medical help, call 911. If you think your pet may have eaten cannabis, call your veterinarian.
