MILLBURN, NJ - As part of the regular schedule of programming the organization puts on, members of the Millburn Municipal Alliance Committee (MMAC) presented another lecture in their empower hour series.

Titled 'The ABCs of CBD,' the program looked to help equip its attendees with the information necessary to form a rational conclusion about the product. Group discussion was also encouraged.

For Nancy Kislin, MMAC member and licensed clinical social worker, running this program is a good thing. Kislin said is passionate about the topic, and that she hoped her group discussion was enough to help parents take the next step.

"It's very exciting for me because I am so passionate about parents being empowered to be aware of what's going on in the community, in their children's lives, in our greater community," Kislin said. "I think the subject of CBD is so vast that an hour and a half program cannot do it justice."

Kislin added," But at least if I got people interested enough to go do more research, to go talk to their kids, to check out what their kids are thinking, what their kids know...[that's] really helpful."

One of those attendees at the program was Jean Hansen. A Short Hills resident, Hansen said that she would take the knowledge gleaned from the program and use it in her daily life.

"I think it was helpful," Hansen said. "I think it reinforced some strategies that I already do use, and it reinforced some knowledge that I already had about CBD. But it did also make me consider other avenues of information that I could use."
