Is Marijuana Medicine? Information for Doctors


Next month, the U of A College of Medicine Phoenix is going to host a lecture about marijuana and whether it is medicine.  Dr. Sue Sisley, St. Joseph’s Hospital, will be giving the presentation at the Phoenix Theatre on October 11th at 5:30. In an earlier blog, Dr. Laura Nelson, ADHS’s Chief Medical Officer, and I shared what we had compiled about the medical research concerning marijuana.  We talked about how patients will likely ask their primary care doctor or go to their medical home to discuss whether marijuana is an option for them.  And we emphasized how important it is to keep Arizona’s Medical Marijuana Program – Medical. Hopefully, physicians will be able to take advantage of Dr. Sisley’s information in October as she examines “Marijuana – Is It Medicine?”  The presentation is free, but you have to RSVP to Brigitte Jordan at bjordan1@email.arizona.edu or (602) 827-2018.
