Although the physician regulations for certifying patients for use is highly regulated by the states, the actual contents of products distributed by dispensaries is much more loosely regulated by state boards of pharmacy and the FDA.

Clinical research protocols will be reviewed as well as the historical and legal aspects of medicinal marijuana use, benefits and risks. There will be a question and answer period as part of the presentation.
