New anti-cannabis campaign launched by DoH

16th February 2009

A new media campaign highlighting the dangers of cannabis has been unveiled by the Department of Health (DoH).

Launched for television, radio and the internet, the scheme shows the effects the drug can have on people by changing them from talkative and relaxed to being paranoid, sick and having panic attacks.

According to the DoH, cannabis is the most frequently used illegal drug by 11 to 15 year olds.

Public health minister Dawn Primarolo said the drug is “destructive”, noting it can incur serious and long-term health problems.

“Young people need to know cannabis isn’t a soft drug. They need to be aware of the risks they’re taking and know there is support for them,” she added.

Earlier this month, the DoH launched a campaign to raise awareness of the signs of stroke.

Named Fast, the three-year 12 million pound project has been unveiled for television, print, radio and the internet.
