#35 Marijuana
2022/06/27
Healthcare has a complex and convoluted relationship with marijuana. Marijuana is a "schedule 1" substance, meaning it has a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use, yet a synthetic version of it is FDA approved as an appetite stimulant. Dr. Thomas, hospitalist, discusses the relevant historical and political context of the drug, as well as its pharmacology, cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, and some communication techniques for discussing drug use with patients.
