Public Health Implications of Expanded Marijuana Programs
Kenneth Finn, MD

Register Now - On-Demand

Many states have expanded their marijuana programs for a variety of reasons, for both medical and recreational purposes. Over time our drug crisis has worsened under the banner of legalization despite one platform to legalize is curbing our crisis. Other health impacts have worsened during this time, including increased use during pregnancy with known harms of in utero exposure, increased health care utilization, addiction across many age groups, increased potency with known harms including suicide and psychosis. Other impacts to the brain and other organs are documented as well.

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

  1. Review the endocannabinoid system and how it is related to the opioid system
  2. Explain what impact expanded marijuana programs have had on public health
  3. Improve the ability to educate and communicate with patients who may have questions about marijuana
