Medical Marijuana In New York 2016

Total Credits: 3.0 (Professional Practice 2.0, Ethics 1.0)
Now almost one year since New York first made medical marijuana available to patients with chronic illnesses, join our panel of experts as we take a look back at the implementation of the State's medical marijuana program, and how medical marijuana legalization may evolve in New York and beyond. Our panelists will range from legislators involved in enabling New York's medical marijuana program and fighting to expand it to those operating dispensaries in New York, as well as patient advocates and an array of medical and legal experts. Panel Speakers, Assemblymember Richard Gottfried and Passionate Care Advocate, Kate Hintz, are featured in the Newsday article,"Medical Marijuana Program Needs Revisions, State Report Says" by Christine Chung (Updated August 28, 2016). We will explore the successes and short comings of New York's unique medical marijuana program, and ask our experts what issues they've experienced in this complex and rapidly-expanding field, as well as how they see the industry developing in the future
