Marijuana has become the new fashion statement of medicine. An illegal substance that was, in recent decades, described as the gateway drug, has now found a place within the pharmaceutical industry and the doctor’s office. To prescribe or not to prescribe? This lecture will help you answer that question with information on the proposed mechanisms of action, indications for use, and risks of using medical cannabis in pain management. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 6, 2020 and they are subject to change as new information is published.
This talk will review the impact of cannabis use and legalization of it in clinical practice.
