Marijuana For Medical Professionals Conference
November 14-16
Weston Hotel in Denver, CO
In January 2016, 23 states allowed medical marijuana use in some form. Yet it still isn’t taught in medical schools. Even in Colorado, the largest legal cannabis state, fewer than 5% of physicians have recommended cannabis to patients. And most budtenders have no clinical training at all. Marijuana for Medical Professionals 2016 offers certified Continuing Medical Education for physicians, nurses, and clinicians. Expert training for budtenders, dispensaries, MIPS, and labs.
