This is the perfect for anyone residing in New York to learn more about how medical marijuana can be beneficial for conditions like PTSD, chronic pain, MS, cancer, and more. The audience will also get a chance to ask doctors specializing in medical marijuana questions regarding the treatment process, patient rights, and how to go about getting a medical card.

About Medical Marijuana:

Medical marijuana is sweeping the nation as an alternative treatment for numerous conditions. Countless studies are turning skeptics into advocates as research is backing up patient claims. Most notably, medical marijuana has gained support from groups like the American Legion, claiming benefits to help patients wean off of prescription drug use, like opioids.

The historical negative stereotypes of marijuana is clearly changing tides. What was written off as a recreational distraction, is now turning into a real medically acclaimed treatment that has patients from all walks of life in support.
