Cannabis lockboxes available free, no questions asked
May 18, 2023
Thanks to some funding from the Youth Cannabis and Tobacco Prevention Program and Wahkiakum Health and Human services, free cannabis safe storage boxes are available in several locations around the county.
‘These boxes allow people, who are of age, to purchase cannabis products and securely store them so they are not getting into the hands of minors, as it is illegal, and [they are] not advised to be using the products,” Heather Odom, a Healthy community specialist at WHHS said.
Combination and key lock boxes are available to anyone 21 and older, no questions asked. Inside is a brochure with information about cannabis use, Odom said.
The boxes, which have been steadily handed out since the program began, are available at cannabis retailers in the county, as well as at the clinic, the high school, the health department, or by contacting Odom at 360-795-8630.
