Panel Presentation

Solving the Opioid Problem

The Latest Findings, Practical Solutions, and Future Directions

Opioid overdoses are now the leading cause of death in Americans under 50 years old, and the problem continues to grow. While our current solutions to the epidemic of opioid-related morbidity and mortality are inadequate, a growing body of evidence suggests that cannabis, when used correctly, can save and improve thousands of lives. Dr. Sulak brings together the top experts in human cannabinoid-opioid research and the front lines of clinical practice to illuminate the core of the opioid problem and provide attendees with concrete steps for successfully using cannabis in the treatment of opioid dependence and abuse. The panel will focus on important facts to guide clinical practice and public health policy, important future directions for research, and lessons learned from clinical success and failure.
