A new call center is available to answer health and safety questions for Colorado residents regarding marijuana. The staff includes toxicology experts, pharmacists and nurses. Drug Center representatives are also available.
The 24/7 service can be reached by calling 877-741-3777, KDVR Fox 31 Denver reports. If it is an emergency, residents are still urged to call 911, as the hotline is not an emergency service. A 3-month pilot program of the hotline will take place. It is funded by the City and County of Denver. Possibility for extension of the service is an option.
In a media statement, officials said, “These medical experts can answer questions about occupational safety hazards for marijuana industry workers as well as questions about pesticides, toxins, additives, ingredients and contaminants in marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) products.”
Officials also said, “Additionally, this line is not meant for use as a directory of dispensaries and will not be useful for anyone seeking specifics of dispensaries, such as locations, hours and pricing.”
