Marijuana Accountability Coalition Takes Action to Defend Babies from the Marijuana Industry
(Denver, CO) -Today, the Marijuana Accountability Coalition (MAC), in partnership with Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), launched the “Don’t Hurt Our Future” Campaign, holding the marijuana industry accountable for putting money and greed over public safety in pushing products to pregnant mothers and unborn children.
In order to keep the marijuana industry from sweeping this under the rug, MAC and SAM are placing 1,000 baby bibs, with the phrase “Don’t Hurt Our Future”, on the doors of marijuana dispensaries, State House offices, and the Colorado Department of Revenue.
“The marijuana industry will stop at nothing to make a buck,” said Justin Luke Riley, founder of the MAC. “Going against all available science, the industry is now recommending pot for pregnant women. They must be held accountable for their actions and not simply be given a slap on the wrist. They are actively putting their profits ahead of the healthy development of future Coloradans.
“The for-profit pot industry must be stopped. We have long known that the marijuana industry has no shame, but this is a new low,” said Dr. Kevin Sabet, founder and president of SAM. “We demand that Colorado state government take immediate action and stop the pot industry from continuing with this. Pot and pregnancy don’t mix.”
