Event Details

On September 21, iPoliticsLive will examine the challenges being faced by thousands of Canadians who are required to self manage the effects of their medical marijuana prescriptions and the interactions with their other medications.  The latest figures show 2,000 Canadian doctors are prescribing medicinal marijuana to 140,000 patients in Canada. What isn’t as certain is how the ‘circle of care’ is being completed once patients receive their mail order prescriptions.  With all other pharmaceutical prescriptions, patients are advised by a qualified pharmacists on the proper use and potential reactions with other prescription medications.  This isn’t the case with medicinal marijuana.  With a growing number of doctors and patients experimenting with various strains of medicinal cannabis, is it time to re-think how these drugs are being dispensed?

Live from the new National Arts Centre, iPolitics columnist Susan Delacourt will sit down with panel of experts to discuss this issue.  Come join in the discussion and participate by asking your questions.
