Health care practitioners, public health practitioners and community advocates alike are encouraged to join this discussion on the role of marijuana as a medication.

The state of Colorado through the Colorado Department of Health and Environment has awarded $9 million to various local and national projects for medical marijuana research.

There is very little scientific research available for patients and health care providers to rely upon to help identify to guide a treatment course. In Colorado alone, there are ---- patients who have been prescribed Medical marijuana for a wide range of diseases and symptoms. With this grant program the efficacy of marijuana and its role in medical treatment will be assessed.

The Marijuana and Health Symposium is the opportunity for health care practitioners to learn about current and proposed research and how it may impact their patients. It will educate and connect researchers, practitioners, and communities.

Learning Objectives:
Summarize the evidential basis, potential clinical indications, and limitations of medical marijuana and compare to scientific evidence

Give examples of the risks and side effects associated with cannabis use

Identify the regulatory challenges associated with Marijuana in Colorado

Assess when cannabis may be an appropriate treatment option for PTSD, Pain, Sleep, Tremor, Seizures and Inflammatory Bowel Disease
