Even if your state has legalized cannabis products, it does not mean that your pharmacy can start selling them. This axiom has been tested and proven again and this time in Georgia.

Georgia took an interesting approach regarding expanding medical marijuana access. As far as I know, it is the only state that specifically allows

As many of you know, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has recently recommended rescheduling marijuana from Schedule I to Schedule III under federal law.

Is CBD a drug, a dietary supplement, or food (or all/none)? Can it be marketed under any of these labels?

Recently, the FDA clarified one aspect of this puzzle: CBD products should not be marketed as drugs unless they went through a rigorous regulatory scrutiny.

Healthcare providers in California are faced with a dilemma: should their practices start doing anything differently since the legalization of marijuana? Many wonder whether they should change their employment policies, admittance procedures, or start recommending and experimenting with marijuana. Cannabis, however, continues to be in “legal-but-not-entirely-legal-status.”[1] Federal law continues to classify marijuana as a Schedule

           Employers in the states that have legalized medical marijuana are left wondering whether to change their employment policies, stop random drug-screening for marijuana, or accommodate medical-marijuana users.
