    Marijuana and the Adolescent Process

    Tuesday, October 10, 2017
    8:00 PM

    Presenter: Rex McGehee, M.D.

    Marijuana is a large and growing factor in current adolescent culture. Recent moves legalizing marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes add to both the availability and legitimization of the usage of marijuana products. Building on current research and clinical experience, this paper will look at the effects of marijuana usage during adolescence on the adolescent developmental process. Using clinical vignettes and one case in detail we will think together about the complex and sometimes permanent consequences to the adolescent, which then alter adult functioning. Implications of this information for treatment will be discussed.

    2 CME/ CE credits offered.

    No charge. All are welcome.
