WHO:      “Patients Out of Time” http://www.medicalcannabis.com/
WHAT:    12th national conference, “Cannabis: Alleviates Pain, Treats Addiction”
WHEN:     May 10 – 12, 2018
WHERE:   Loew’s Movie Palace, 54 Journal Square Plaza, Jersey City, NJ
WHY:       Accredited educational program for healthcare professionals, patients and advocates

Mary Lynn Mathre, RN, MSN, the President of “Patients Out of Time” (POT), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational organization, is bringing her highly regarded cannabis/marijuana conference to New Jersey this year. POT’s 12th national conference, “Cannabis: Alleviates Pain, Treats Addiction” will be held May 10 – 12, 2018 at Loew’s Movie Palace, 54 Journal Square Plaza, Jersey City, NJ. Registration information is available at: http://patientsoutoftime.org/the-twelfth-national-clinical-conference-on-cannabis-therapeutics/

The POT conference is an excellent way for physicians to earn CMEs, and nurses and other healthcare professionals to earn contact hours (CEUs) for their continuing education requirements, while learning about the science that supports the use of marijuana/cannabis. POT conferences bring together some of the top marijuana researchers from across the country and from around the world.  Medical marijuana patients and activists are also represented at these conferences.

The theme of the conference is particularly relevant to New Jersey this year. Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order #6 on January 23, 2018 directing the Department of Health and the Board of Medical Examiners to review the Medicinal Marijuana Program (MMP) and make recommendations to expand it and ease access to it. The governor said that expanding the MMP will “ensure that (patients) are receiving (medical marijuana) tailored to their medical needs, and make them less likely to turn to potentially more harmful and less medically appropriate drugs such as opioids, the use of which was declared a public health crisis.” See: http://nj.gov/infobank/eo/056murphy/pdf/EO-6.pdf

Ken Wolski, RN of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana--New Jersey and on the Board of Advisors of Patients Out of Time, has attended eight (8) POT conferences since 2004. “It has been fascinating to watch the developments in the science of the Endocannabinoid System—how marijuana actually works in the human body—as more discoveries about this amazing system are made every year,” he said.
