Marijuana Update 2015
Fees Instructions for Obtaining Credit
Data support the notion that marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol or other drugs, but that does not mean that its use is entirely benign. Given the national trend towards medicalization and commercialization, it is important to have current information about marijuana, including its biology, pharmacology, effects on brain development, and physical and mental health risks, in addition to issues related to synthetic marijuana. Mechanisms for decreasing marijuana abuse among college students will also be addressed.
- Physicians and Physician Assistants
- Nurses and Nurse Practitioners
- Psychologists, Counselors, and Social Workers
- Health Educators
The participants should be able to:
- Discuss the basics of marijuana use, abuse, pharmacology, risks, and epidemiology among college students.
- Describe the neurodevelopmental implications, physical and mental health effects, and associated adverse health behaviors related to marijuana use.
- Describe effective strategies to decrease marijuana use by college students.
