Speaker’s Synopsis: Marijuana is becoming decriminalized or legalized in many states, often because of continued evidence that it may be an effective treatment for certain medical conditions, especially chronic pain. However, in addition to marijuana there are other options to exhaust before prescribing an opioid. This talk will present evidence regarding the potential benefits and risks of cannabis as well as other options that may be effective in the management of patients with chronic pain.
