Event Details

Medical Marijuana vs. Opioids:
Current Research, Addiction, and How It is Affecting Employers

 

Join the Greater Detroit Area Health Council (GDAHC) as we explore the role medical marijuana has in pain treatment, the advantages over opioids, current policies and how it helps or hinders medicinal advancement. In addition, while laws may be cut and dry for employers, is it for patients who rely on cannabis benefits to help with pain? If it were a pill prescribed by a primary care doctor, would it be treated differently? How are employers truly approaching the subject? Join the discussion!

Event Topics:

  • Explore current research surrounding medical marijuana and how it relates to the treatment of pain and other afflictions. Is it a better alternative to current opioids on the market?
  • Is cannabis being explored for further treatment options and what is keeping it from mainstream use?
  • Is medical cannabis a gateway drug like opioids seem to be?
  • How are employers handling drug testing for employees who use medical marijuana to aide afflictions?
  • Is the hiring process more difficult for employers now that medical cannabis is legal?
