  • Overview

    Twenty-nine states and the District of Columbia have now enacted laws regarding cannabis. This includes medical and recreational use of cannabis. Pharmacists may be uncomfortable discussing cannabis use with patients given its Schedule I status and potential drug interactions; however, it is necessary for pharmacists to provide education and effective counseling when patients use cannabis. This program will address key issues so that pharmacists are better able to discuss the medical use of cannabis with patients.
