Missouri Medical Cannabis Primer Presentation (For Physicians, Nurses and Clinicians)
With Medical Cannabis now legal in 40 US States, practitioners have a greater need than ever to understand the laws surrounding this program, cannabis as medicine, the endocannabinoid system and the research available for its use in qualifying conditions. In Missouri, Amendment 2 became law effective December 6, 2018 and Amendment 3 for Adult Use became law December of 2022. Across the state, there is a general lack of information available about these programs, the patient certification process, treating qualifying conditions and the potential benefits of medical cannabis.
MoCannTrade's Healthcare Education and Training committee is helping fill those information gaps by creating and providing a free Missouri medical cannabis program primer. This activity was developed by physicians for Missouri practitioners to provide a broad overview of cannabis as medicine, physician responsibilities along with the legal protections provided by Amendment 2 / Article XIV. Led by three Missouri MDs/DOs, the medical cannabis primer ensures participants come away better informed, educated and with a clearer understanding of their role and responsibility in certifying or treating medical cannabis patients in Missouri.
