Public Health Considerations and Medical Cannabis Use
Dr. Sasha Noe, DO, Ph.D.
As we know, the time is long over due to remove Cannabis from schedule 1 designation and any truly educated professional in this field would be hard pressed to disagree based on decades of research available to us. As with all substances, however, whether it be pharmaceutical or non-pharmaceutical, there is a need to talk about public health concerns. Whether it relates to the adult or non-adult population, when used inappropriately in the work place or in public, when driving or operating heavy machinery or when used in medicine to treat medical conditions appropriately, there are legitimate public health concerns that we must be not only aware of, but we also have the responsibility to understand and advocate for safety AND effectiveness of medical cannabis use. In this presentation we will review some of the considerations and potential solutions that have been and that will continue to be needed moving forward to ensure that the overall health of the public is protected as much as possible.
