OSMA Offers Personalized Information Sessions on Medical Marijuana
Information and rumors are flying fast and furiously regarding Ohio’s medical marijuana program. The OSMA is your resource for accurate, timely information—and we can bring it right to your office.
Jennifer Hayhurst, OSMA Director of Regulatory Affairs, has been busy delivering presentations about medical marijuana throughout the state. Hayhurst works directly with the State Medical Board of Ohio and the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy to bring you the latest information and answer your questions.
During the discussion, Hayhurst covers:
Ohio Medical Marijuana Laws and Regulations
How Can a Physician Legally Recommend Medical Marijuana?
How Does a Patient Register as a Medical Marijuana Patient?
These topics often lead to a host of other questions, like:
• What if a patient has a condition that was “similar” to a qualifying condition, but not exactly a qualifying condition?
• Even if patient has a qualifying condition, it is up to his/her physician to determine whether or not to recommend medical marijuana. Can a patient file a complaint with the Medical Board if they are denied medical marijuana?
• What should the hospital do if patients who utilize medical marijuana for treatment come into the hospital and are admitted? There are many medical and legal considerations here.
There are many issues to consider, and even if you have decided you will not become certified to recommend medical marijuana, you will inevitably one day have a patient who is taking it.
