Cannabis Conundrums: Medical vs. Marijuana – 1 CE – Live Webinar on December 5, 2022 8PM ET

Activity Overview

Our entire country, with 95% of states creating legislation related to Marijuana, is evolving its Marijuana supply chain via the recreational and “medical” formulations. Yet, we as healthcare professionals are left with barely any education on these substances. More education is needed in order to actually provide tangible life-saving, or at least life-improving, patient education.
 
Marijuana has been around for centuries, and has never received more lime light than in recent years in respect to 95% of our country’s states enacting legislation regarding ‘recreational” and/or “medical” marijuana, even though it remains a Federal DEA Controlled Substance Class One agent. So how does that work in the criminal field? Better yet, how do we as healthcare professionals discuss such substances with our patients? We will discuss all things Cannabis, including botany concepts, legal concepts, and, of course, pharmacological concerns that every healthcare professional absolutely needs to know in order to provide “high” quality patient care.
