37 states currently allow for use of medical cannabis and the Tennessee General Assembly has debated the issue extensively for the last few sessions. Members need to learn what is going on politically and medically with cannabis in our state. Dr. Autry Parker will lead our session to help you understand the regulatory landscape, the science and treatment uses, and questions you may be faced with in the near future. This is a high level discussion to get physicians oriented to medical cannabis in Tennessee.
