Who is Drug Safe Utah?

Drug Safe Utah (DSU) is a coalition of people and organizations who are concerned with the health and safety of Utah citizens, particularly in relation to the ill-advised Utah Cannabis Act initiative being promoted by the Marijuana Policy Project, the Libertas Institute and others. Our coalition includes representatives of law enforcement agencies, faith-based organizations, health care providers, education, local and state government representatives and more.

DSU hopes that Utah citizens, armed with more complete information, will reject the Utah Cannabis Act and opt instead for laws and policies that will help those who need help without subjecting the state to the inevitable ill effects of this poorly drafted and dangerous initiative.

  1. We have been working on a website https://medicinalmusings.com that contains some of the medical research showing the damaging effects of medical marijuana and cannabis. We are having some difficulty getting some of the links to work correctly, but the information is there. We are working on making it available to the coalition and the general public to help them see the research supporting Drug Safe Utah’s stand. Please feel free to share the information we have available. If a link doesn’t work (just takes you to the home page) try again, or try accessing the post through the search bar or another post in that category. Thank you for taking a stand to protect the people of Utah now and in the future.
