The Millvale Community Library is devoting April 20 — an annual holiday in cannabis culture — to educating the public about marijuana.
The event, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will consist of several local businesses that provide medical marijuana and cannabidiol — commonly known as CBD — products presenting about the industry’s different aspects, according to organizer Abigail Beddall, library clerk and teaching artist. Vendors also will interact with visitors at booths.
“We have patrons with chronic pain who struggled with registration, patrons who are interested in CBD treatments for autism or muscle spasms, other patrons who see marijuana as a party drug,” she said. “By inviting professionals into our space, we can educate ourselves to better understand and explain this growing industry and share this information.”
“I love that the library is offering a cannabis education event. Libraries are sources of knowledge and education for all ages. Educating the public results in reducing stigma and allowing people to take their health into their own hands. We at Solevo Wellness pride ourselves in educating our patients, so we are very excited to speak at this event,” said Kaveise Cadogan, patient care consultant and external marketing coordinator at Solevo Wellness dispensary in Squirrel Hill.
