Legalized Marijuana And The Challenges of Cannabis Addiction

About the Event

For most of the tens of millions of people who regularly use cannabis, it’s no different than enjoying a glass of wine after work.

Last year, however, 14.2 million people were diagnosed with cannabis use disorder and nearly 900,000 people were treated for cannabis addiction. For those who want to quit, the withdrawal symptoms can be as powerful as those from opioids, causing severe emotional, psychiatric, and physical illness. It’s an issue that is rarely discussed as more states have moved to legalization.

Our Panel On This Topic Includes:

  • Tommy Thompson: Former Governor of Wisconsin and HHS Secretary during the Bush administration, the department responsible for federal drug policy.
  • Dr. Ginger Constantine: CEO and Co-founder of PleoPharma, a development stage pharmaceutical company creating a treatment for Cannabis Withdrawal Syndrome

Join our webinar to hear these experts discuss the growing public health issue of cannabis addiction and what can be done to help those who want to quit.
