SAGINAW, MI — Health officials in Saginaw County are giving away lockboxes for area residents to safely store their legal marijuana.

The Saginaw County Health Department is launching the “Lock It Up” campaign, thanks to a grant from the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

“Medical marijuana is a public health concern, especially as it relates to protecting children and youth,” said Saginaw County Public Health Officer Christina Harrington. “Our multimedia educational effort will inform county residents on the safest use, storage, and handling of medical marijuana to protect everyone.”

As part of the grant-funded campaign, officials will distribute 1,000 lockboxes for safe storage and handling, along with educational materials to ensure medical marijuana stays out of the hands of children.

The lockboxes are free and can be picked up at the Saginaw County Health Department building at 1600 N. Michigan Ave. Due to COVID-19 building entry restrictions, appointments are required. They can be made online at, or by calling 989-758-3825, option 4.
