Lecture: Cannabis/Marijuana for Medically ill  – Why? When and How?

In this lecture I will provide some practical info on assessment process for qualifying patients as eligible in obtaining a “Medical Cannabis License” which allows them to purchase, possess and use medical marijuana, especially for neurological and/or psychiatric needs. In the scope of high responsibility that we (M.D.'s) have, being on the forefront of this movement, to educate both qualifying patients and the public about the therapeutic, rehabilitative and palliative benefits of medical marijuana. By promoting awareness through our educational services (for health professional, patient caregivers and family members), I hope to reduce or even eliminate the stigma attached to using marijuana for medicinal purposes.)
