Is your patient requesting medical Marijuana? Do you want to start an inpatient on medical marijuana? Is there a hospital policy for that? Should there be? Has your client/patient been involved in an accident while on medical marijuana?

New legislation aimed at legalizing Marijuana is imminent. The legal, medical and social concerns are being hotly debated. Medical marijuana is already a legal form of treatment. But what are the implications for you as a physician? A lawyer? What do you need to know with respect to the legal issues arising in practice? What are your liabilities? How does this all work?

This MLST program will strive to answer these questions and discuss the grey zones in clinical medical and legal practices as medical marijuana becomes more commonplace.
