Tobacco Free Schools Laws have been updated

School Districts, School Resource Officers, Local Public Health Agencies, and Educators:

Did you know that the Tobacco Free Schools Laws has been updated and now includes retail marijuana in the prohibition language?

The new law amended the Tobacco Free Schools statute to require school districts to prohibit retail marijuana use on school property.

To help school districts and local public health agencies with the updated requirements, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment's Retail Marijuana Education Program has contracted with RMC Health to review and analyze current Colorado school districts policies for compliance and identify model policy language.

RMC Health is available to work with you to provide training, education, and technical assistance to review and revise current policies to comply with the updated Tobacco Free School Laws.

For technical assistance please contact Natalie Boyer at natalieb@rmc.org, RMC Health, Project lead or call her at 303-867-9107.

For more information: Please read this letter to learn more about the types of resources available, details on the legislation, and where to find tools and communication templates.
