About this Webinar

Medical marijuana is legal in many parts of the U.S.; however, strict federal regulations and administrative obstacles have severely limited research. The result is that millions of Americans are using various forms of medical marijuana without sufficient information on dosing, benefits, and risks. This webinar discusses medical marijuana and related cannabis products, unique challenges and issues for research, and the application of the Common Rule and the Belmont Report’s ethical framework to this research. It also covers practical issues for researchers, IRBs, and institutional administrators.

Update: Now included with the original webinar is an update on marijuana research recorded by Dr. Jane Dumsha on August 12, 2021.
