Cannabis Bridge from Medical to Health & Wellness




3:00 pm - 3:50 pm

Based on the legal standards in the Controlled Substances Act, cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance because it does not meet the criteria for currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, there is a lack of accepted safety for its use under medical supervision, and it has a high potential for abuse. And yet, the use of cannabis for medical purposes is legal in 31 U.S. states, plus the territories of Guam and Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. This panel will explore cannabis as a bridge from medical (in the Big Pharma sense) to health and wellness (for those who choose to use common sense.)
