“The health and wellness of our members is of critical importance to LiUNA, and in launching this partnership with Aphria, we are taking a major step forward in improving the lives of our members,” says Rob Petroni, Business Manager of Local 625. ” Workplace injuries are far too often treated with opioids and their related effects, and medical cannabis will provide another treatment option.”
