Medical Marijuana Stigma, Regulations, Addiction


More than two-thirds of U.S. states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for medical treatments and more are considering bills to do the same. The use of cannabis as medicine has not been rigorously tested due to production and governmental restrictions, resulting in limited clinical research to define the safety and efficacy of using cannabis to treat diseases.  Medical marijuana doesn’t always “feel” like a medical treatment or medicine.  

This course will explore medical marijuana.  We will look at the various ways this treatment is treated differently than other prescribed medications and why.  We will also explore how the mental health and addiction fields have changed over the years with issues such as this.


This course will award 1 continuing education hour.  Please see the board approval box for course approval information.
