Marijuana Outreach Programs
Nevada Cannabis Distributors Association (NCDA) is opposed to driving under any influence and we believe it is 100 percent preventable. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, drunk-‐‑driving fatalities have decreased 53 percent since 1982 to record lows. As part of our effort to prevent driving under the influence , we have key initiatives like the Cannabis Designate a Driver campaign safe ride home programs, teamed up with companies like UBER in cities that are available.
Marijuana Local Safe Ride programs brings together local distributors, and retail establishments to provide free or reduced fare cab rides to bar and restaurant patrons.
Nevada Cannabis Distributors Association is opposed to underage Cannabis usage and supports prevention by providing resources to parents, retailers and educators. Underage use can be an issue with cannabis as laws continue to relax – but tremendous progress can be made through sound educational programs and rigorous enforcement of the law.
We can set a positive example for kids by having open and honest discussions with them about both cannabis and alcohol, explaining to them that each substance is meant for adult consumption (excluding medical marijuana for valid patients) instead of shutting down the conversation entirely and hoping that by ignoring it, children will forget about cannabis.
Nevada Cannabis Distributors Association will develop supported community‑based programs that help parents talk with their children about cannabis use; help retailers educate their employees on how to properly check I.D.s and prevent sales to minors; remind adults not to provide cannabis to minors; assist schools in building self ‑esteem among teens; and support law enforcement officials in enforcing the law.
