The Writing's on the Bathroom Wall
- strategic Cannabis messaging campaign-

Washrooms at GECDSB high schools will soon dispense more than water, soap and paper products, they will be a place where students can get important information.

In consultation with the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit messages about cannabis use have been crafted for display in high school bathrooms, above the urinals and on the backs of stall doors. This decidedly low-tech medium is intended for a teenaged audience and will be displayed in a series with legal and health-related implications of cannabis use.

Kennedy Collegiate Institute is the first location to have the frames installed and the messages displayed in bathrooms on the school's main floor. All the Board's high schools will be complete by the end of January, 2019.

For more information contact Public relations Officer Scott Scantlebury @ 519-255-3200 ext. 10224 or 519-995-5797.
