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.
