NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Before dispensing medical marijuana to inpatients, hospitalists should examine their state and federal laws to protect themselves, according to a presentation at Hospital Medicine 2019.
“The Drug Enforcement Agency still maintains that cannabis has no approved medical use,” Charles Reznikoff, MD, assistant professor at the University of Minnesota, said during his presentation. “The agency has been pretty clear that they are not intending to change that, so there is going to be a rift between state and federal laws somewhat long-term.”
