In this talk, Dr. Leigh Winston will discuss the basics of marijuana as a legitimate medicine, including general uses and benefits, delivery methods, and potential side effects and drug interactions. She’ll also cover the specifics of PA law, such as who will be legally eligible, how to get certified for use, and which forms of marijuana will be made available. Dr. Leigh Winston is a family physician interested in lifestyle medicine and plant-based health.
