Medical and Recreational Cannabis in Senior Care Settings

Registration is now open for our two regional workshops on cannabis. This timely session will explore the various implications that medical and recreational cannabis legalization will have on senior care employers, employees/staff, and residents and their families. Participants will hear from subject matter and legal experts from different practice areas, as well as representatives from long term care homes and engage in discussion on the important considerations and best practices for recreational and medical cannabis use in senior care settings.
