The Inside Scoop
The legalization of cannabis is not an event but a responsibility. One reason cannabis has been illegal all these years is that no one in power was willing to take responsibility for it. Legalization changes that. One consequence of legalization is regulation. Who is going to be responsible for that? Another consequence is that people who might use cannabis need to be educated about that. Who is going to be responsible for that? Patients who use cannabis therapeutically require goods and services? Who is going to be responsible for that?
Certainly, various individuals, organizations and communities will develop to address these various opportunities. That process got underway years ago. The participants have competing interests beyond the shared goal in expanding legalization. What they all have in common is a need for information about cannabis and ability to make use of it.
Information has authority. Science-based information empowers patients and persuades politicians. It’s also the most valuable social currency in the marketplace. Science provides credibility. Cannabis has value for many reasons. Science explains that value. What do consumers want to know about cannabis? They have lots of questions, but they can be condensed into two queries. What cannabis does do, and how does it do that? Science provides that information. More importantly, that information is valuable, especially to those of us taking responsibility for legalized cannabis.
Knowledge how cannabis works facilitates providing services and products to cannabis users, whether it’s public policy, education, health care, or meeting other consumer needs.
This is why a conference like this is so cool. Patients Out of Time has spent 25 years cultivating relationships with the pioneers and practitioners in medical/therapeutic cannabis use. It’s difficult to get any closer to the source than this. What makes the National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics so special is the long-term relationship the organization has with researchers and practitioners. Patients Out of Time provides is able to provide professionally certified presentations from the “originals”, the trail-blazers, influencers, and authorities in their fields. They know how cannabis works, and how to make that value benefit individual lives. That’s authenticity.
