      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. There is reasonable evidence for therapeutic use.

      2. More research is needed - especially larger randomized controlled trials.

      3. Mass law has reasonable regulations attempting to avoid public harm, but we don't know how our medical marijuana delivery system will evolve.

      4. Counsel your patients on youth access just like you would when prescribing a narcotic - lock it!

      5. Understand the adverse effects including addiction and do a substance abuse assessment on your patient if you are authorizing.

      6. Take your role as an authorizing physician seriously and stay informed!
