Course Description

Length: 1h 5min    Published: 1/24/2024    
The legalization of cannabis in the U.S. has seen rapid growth in recent years. However, even as we've seen the expansion of legal production, distribution, and use of cannabis at the state level, cannabis is still considered a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance federally, making it a highly illegal drug. This program will dive into the dichotomy of state and federal laws regarding cannabis. Topics covered include the federal regulatory framework of cannabis, the Ogden and Cole Memos and the pathway for legitimacy, the basic regulatory pillars of states' cannabis programs, the adverse impact of federal illegality, and the future of federal legalization.
Learning Objectives
* Understand the existing federal regulatory framework of cannabis and its impact on states where cannabis is legal
* Know the basic legal pillars of states' cannabis programs
* Learn the current trends and potential future of cannabis legality in the U.S.

Speaker Q&A

Mr. Redman, Does any state, where Marijuana is legal either for recreational or medical use, allow its use in conjunction with prescription opioid use prescribed for chronic pain?
- RogerJ
I am not aware of any state law on the subject. It would seem to me to be a contraindication issue (if any) to be discussed with your physician.
