Slide 1

Hello! Our final presentation topic for HM668 Legal Aspects of Healthcare Delivery is on The Impact of Medicinal Marijuana on Healthcare Delivery. Our team members include Nick Odell, Nisha Patel, and Sonam Shah.

Slide 2

Marijuana has been around for thousands of years. The first known record of marijuana dates back to 2727 BC in China. It later spread to other Asian countries, and finally made its way to North America and the rest of the Western Hemisphere by 1545. Restrictions on the use of marijuana were not created until recently in the 1900s. However, in recent years the laws surrounding the use of marijuana have become a hot topic of debate, and states are fighting for the restrictions that were put in place to be lifted.

Slide 3

In this presentation, we are going to cover the various topics surrounding the issue of legalizing both medical and recreational marijuana. We’ll cover the difficulty in proving the benefits of medical marijuana, case law on marijuana (and we’ll specifically take a look at case law in Connecticut), and the public concerns on the use of marijuana.

Slide 4

We’ve all heard the terms medical marijuana and recreational marijuana, but what’s the difference? There’s really only one big difference between the two. Medical marijuana is marijuana that has been prescribed by a licensed and practicing physician for a specific medical condition. Recreational marijuana, on the other hand, is only used for leisure. Neither is legal under federal law, though some states have started to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana. Recreational marijuana, however, has taken longer to legalize.

Slide 5

The Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 was the first law passed in the US to place any restrictions on the use of Marijuana. The act aimed to decrease the use of marijuana by placing a tax on any marijuana-related purchases. The Boggs Act, which was established in 1952, put in place set punishments for anyone that was convicted of drug possession In 1970, the Controlled Substances Act was passed. This was enacted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, or DEA. It categorized all drugs into 5 schedules, number one through five.

Slide 6

According to the DEA, marijuana is considered to be a schedule I drug. This means that they have high potential for abuse and the potential to create psychological and/or physical dependence. The categorization of marijuana as a schedule I drug has presented problems for the medical research industry. The DEA is required to approve research on drugs with this classification. Without the DEA’s permission to perform research, medical marijuana cannot become an approved drug under the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA.

Slide 7

Although the federal government still considers marijuana an illicit drug, many states have started legalizing it for both medical and recreational purposes. Marijuana was first legalized for medicinal purposes in 1995, and for recreational purposes in 2012.

Slide 8

There are a number of chronic medical conditions that marijuana may be prescribed for. The most common conditions that marijuana can alleviate the symptoms of are chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, irritable bowel disease, glaucoma, schizophrenia, chemotherapy-related symptoms, epilepsy, anorexia and other eating disorders, and anxiety disorders
