Understanding Marijuana: Pharmacology and New Findings
A growing body of medical evidence demonstrates marijuana (THC) in its current highly potent, newer concentrated forms (“edibles" and "BHO”), and especially the new synthetic cannabinoids (“Spice”) results in major medical and mental health problems. Evidence of increased risks for psychosis, schizophrenia, heart attacks, seizures, hyperemesis syndrome, decreased IQ, and even testicular cancer has been associated with cannabis abuse. This session will look at marijuana as a drug, current findings of its effects, new forms of abuse, its botany, chemistry, pharmacology and its major effects on the brain and body.
