Americans for Safe Access Unity Conference

May 22 @ 5:00 pm - May 24 @ 6:00 pm

This year’s Americans for Safe Access Unity Conference focuses on the life-saving role that medical cannabis can play in the fight against the Opioid Epidemic.

The Opioid Epidemic in the US is claiming 91 American lives a day. Current policies focus on downstream strategies and criminalizing patients and medical professionals. Research shows a nearly 25% decrease of opioid overdose deaths in states with medical cannabis laws. However, medical cannabis is not option for all patients due to the federal-state legal conflict, inadequacies in state laws, and lack of medical professional and patient education.
