Who: Dr. Libby Stuyt, M.D.

Court personnel and treatment centers struggle with medical marijuana in their milieu, addressing victim and public safety concerns while striving to differentiate substance use disorders from the application of medical marijuana allowances.

Libby Stuyt, MD will share the latest research on the impact of high potency marijuana.

“While there has been some evidence that cannabinoids can be beneficial for some medical conditions, this has all been with low dose THC (less than 10%). The concentrates that are available are significantly more potent and their use can result in worsening psychiatric symptoms, aggression, cognitive problems, and violence, putting public health and victim health at risk.”
