Answer tough health care-related questions.

Written and edited by a diverse group of seasoned professionals, coverage in this first edition of Health Care and the Business of Cannabis, includes analysis of the unique issues faced by health care providers whose residents, patients, and employees may participate in state cannabis programs. Whether readers are working with hospitals or long-term care facilities, physicians or mid-level practitioners, they will have guidance for providing informed counsel and tackling tough questions such as:

  • How do post-acute care providers reconcile federal laws with state legalized medical cannabis reforms?
  • What types of policies should be created, and what are the influencing factors and options that exist when creating policies and procedures if a long-term care facility permits medicinal cannabis?
  • What are the potential legal implications for a health care practitioner who recommends medicinal cannabis pursuant to a state-legalized medical cannabis program?
  • May a patient use medical cannabis while in a hospital or any of its facilities?
  • How does medicinal cannabis use get noted in the patient's medical record?

Advise on business transactions and opportunities.

The authors provide full coverage of the business transactions involving the manufacturing, possession, or distribution of medicinal marijuana. They also take a close look at opportunities related to:

  • The research of medicinal cannabis
  • The creation of wellness products or topical creams using hemp or its derivatives
  • Establishing laboratories or educational programs to educate patients about the effects of cannabis
  • Obtaining a license to operate a center for dispensing medicinal cannabis
