Denver, Colorado, is rolling out a new cannabis educational initiative aimed at teens. The program is part of the city’s marijuana policy department. Packaged in an upbeat gameshow format, the program claims to give young people information on a range of different issues related to cannabis.
“Weeded Out” Game Show
The new gameshow-style program is called “Weeded Out.” And the premise is simple.
The host asks a bunch of questions about marijuana. And teens try to answer them. If you get the question wrong, you’re “weeded out.”
