Seniors to discuss marijuana as answer to opioids
Seniors in Texas will gather next month to hold an open discussion concerning using cannabis as an alternative to opioids.
The Texas NORML Senior Alliance will be presenting “Seniors and the Opioid Dilemma – Is Cannabis the Answer?” on Thursday, February 8th from 6 to 8 p.m. in Sun City, Texas at The Atrium.
Featured speakers include Nishi Whiteley, author of “Chronic Relief: A Guide to Cannabis for the Terminally and Chronically Ill” and retired judge, John Delaney.
Whiteley will provide information on cannabis use as an adjunct or therapy program and explain its relationship to the endocannabinoid system. Judge Delaney is set to explain Texas laws, including the state’s limited medical cannabis extract program.
“Both speakers are considered experts in their fields and have engaged and participated in legislative discussions pertaining to why our Texas laws need to be expanded and changed in the 2019 session” the organization stated in a release.
The two hour meeting aims to educate attendees on basic information about the cannabis plant, what happens to your body when it is ingested, how cannabis is different today compared to the past, what the laws are, the difference between recreational and medical consumption, and what actions are needed to further change the law.
“There will be a question and answer session at the end of the presentation, so please bring your questions and feel free to ask about those things you’ve always wondered about, but were hesitant to ask. This will be a safe place to get information, ask questions and meet like minded folks who are seeking information or are looking for ways they can help to make change in the 2019 session.”
