The Mbadachusetts Medical Society is offering a continuing medical education curriculum on medical marijuana.
The president of the Medical Society of Mbadachusetts, Henry Dorkin, said that the medical society continues to oppose the use of medical and recreational marijuana. Medical marijuana was legalized in Mbadachusetts in 2012, and recreational marijuana was legalized on the ballot in 2016. But he said the medical society must take into account the reality that patients will use marijuana.
"Since it happened as the law of" Earth, we have to see how it can be implemented with the least injury, toxicity and problems badociated with it, "said Dorkin.
The curriculum was developed by TheAnswerPage.com , a medical education website that offers content about medical marijuana.
The curriculum will teach physicians about marijuana dosing and drug interactions.Medicals will learn about medical, physiological, and mental health impacts They will also learn about the medical use of cannabis to treat the symptoms of specific diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, HIV / AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and others.
The curriculum provides information on the recommendation of cannabis and on how the federal law considers medical marijuana …
So far, there are only 210 registered doctors in the state who can recommend marijuana to people until October 31, according to Mbadachusetts Medical Marijuana Program statistics. This indicates that most doctors still do not feel comfortable recommending it to patients.
Dorkin said the medical society is not trying to convince more doctors to write recommendations for marijuana.
"We are not in any way urging people to write for this," said Dorkin. "But it's a fact of life that marijuana exists, it's legalized in the Commonwealth of Mbadachusetts, and the reality is that doctors must be educated about marijuana, and they must learn to manage its effects on patients."
