Register Now - On-Demand

Over the past two decades, the number of people using cannabis has skyrocketed, along with individual and public health harms such as addiction, psychosis, and suicide. Concerning parallels exist between today's industry driven cannabis market and the prescription opioid pain pill industry which fueled our nation's addiction epidemic. This talk will review the current evidence regarding potential harms, equip participants to consider what products should be labeled a "medicine" and to reasonably discuss risks with patients, peers, media and legislators.

At the conclusion of this seminar, attendees will be able to:

  1. Review the impact of cannabis on mental health
  2. Articulate what is meant by a ""medicine""
  3. Recognize the similarities between the history of our opioid crisis and the current cannabis landscape
