Hello to everyone who attended the Marijuana training earlier this month. There were many questions with regard to SAPC’s position with regard to Substance Abuse Treatment and Medical Marijuana. Nathan, one of our presenters, followed up, and below you can see the email we received from him.
If you want to get more information, work on this issue, or stay involved, please contact one (or more of us).
I spoke at a recent workshop by HIVDATF on medical cannabis for substance abuse counselors. The all asked the same question, “What do we do when someone is a medical cannabis patient?”
Holly told me that they are currently investigating the issue and will let us know as soon as they have a statement. In the meantime, please feel free to forward her info to your email list of attendees if they have any other questions.
