    • Overview

      Marijuana has been around for centuries and has more recently reignited debate as to its usefulness and legality. More than half of our country has legalized “Medical” Marijuana, even though it remains a Federal DEA Controlled Substance Class One agent. So, how does that work in the criminal field? Or, perhaps, in the clinical realm? In this discussion on “Medical” Marijuana, which is also part of the overall Substances of Abuse Specialty Pharmacist (SASP) certificate training program, we will aim to gain a “higher” education on marijuana, hemp, and cannabinoids. Just what is hemp and is it really more versatile than cotton? Is my shirt made of hemp? What types of marijuana are there? Are there pharmaceutical products coming to market that are cannabinoids? If so, where will the products be placed into therapy and how will they work? If these “budding” questions take your curiosity “higher,” then get ready to roll up your sleeves and dive deeper into the “weeds.”
