This free program will provide a brief overview of the pharmacology of cannabis; the active and inactive metabolites of cannabis; changes in drug testing; risks associated with cannabis use and driving; the effects of second-hand smoke exposure; and differences in routes of administration.
Our panelists will discuss the synergistic effect of alcohol consumption and marijuana use on driving, citing data from research studies indicating the presence of analytes of cannabis in the body of non-users, and the differences in the metabolism of cannabis in the body and its effects on cognitive performance, physiological measures, and self-report measures of drug effect.
