If you've been on the metro in Montreal or out and about recently in Quebec, you may have come across the strange new awareness campaign the Ministry of Health has put out across the province.\nThe campaign is related to the use of cannabis and is meant to spread awareness and provide information about potential risks associated with marijuana use that can impact the health and safety of marijuana users.\nREAD ALSO: Here's Exactly How To Get Quebec Or Montreal To Compensate You For Car Damage Due To Potholes\nTL;DR Quebec's Ministry of Health has released a new weed-awareness campaign that is downright bizarre. Photos of the campaign and people's hilarious reactions below.\nThe government hopes that the campaign will "inform young people of the main risks associated with cannabis use," as well as spur young people to educate themselves about the substance that was legalized last year.\nVia Ministry of Health and Social Services\nThe idea is, "Weed could never do that.... but there are real risks."\nThe government plans to utilize several mediums to spread their message, particularly through "television, movies, digital radio ads, web placements, postings in bistros, buses and subways," and more in order to catch the attention of youth in Quebec.\nVia Ministry of Health and Social Services\nIn addition to the posters, several videos were also created.\nIt does seem to want to frighten people who are unfamiliar with the psychedelic effects of marijuana while simultaneously confirming that, no, marijuana won't make you hallucinate strange things happening to your body. Nor will you begin to shapeshift.\nIt's easy for weed users to laugh this campaign off, but it has the ability to really frighten people who don't know what marijuana use is really like.\nI think it also has the ability to cause another group of people to laugh off any risks related to marijuana use. While it can be a completely innocent substance, it isn't completely free of side effects.\nok what's up with the weed in Quebec?\n— Jimmy Ruffian (@TheRoughGo) February 6, 2019\nI guess they are trying to say don’t try the #weed in #Quebec 😂😂😂😂🌿🇨🇦\n— Canna Relief 420 (@cannarelief420) February 6, 2019\nIn fact, it looks like the reactions are entirely negative. People who have encountered the campaign in Quebec can't help but make fun of the government's attempt to be out of the box.\nAlso, everyone is wondering who came up with this campaign and... what were they smoking?\nLMAO wtf how strong is the weed in quebec ??? https://t.co/MxE5xJus5m\n— sweety sooriy (@SweetySooriy) February 6, 2019\nThe only thing that perhaps is loved more than separation in Quebec is having a serious hate on for weed.\n— Buzz (@BuzzDankyear) February 11, 2019\nWhile some drugs definitely have the ability to cause hallucinations or the feelings associated with the pictures in the campaign, it is a fallacy that marijuana has this effect.\nI think they mixed up #weed with #magicmushrooms 🍄 #potstocks #quebec https://t.co/9LiIxgX2CU\n— Wolf of Potstocks (@wolfofpotstocks) February 5, 2019\nIt's a dead heat between Quebec and Manitoba on which province hates weed the most. https://t.co/qi646afOOD\n— Buzz (@BuzzDankyear) November 23, 2018\nThis new campaign, paired with the CAQ's desire to up the legal age to 21, paints a picture almost as bizarre as the ads.\nWhile the province had no choice but to follow suit with federal legalization, it seems CAQ leader François Legault plans to push back as much as is provincially possible.\nFor those of us who live in Montreal, this stance seems terribly out of sync with citizens. But the reality is that, when polled, Quebec showed 54% disapproval with legalization.
