American Society of Cannabis Medicine to assess cannabis regulation

MORE Act: US moves to decriminalise cannabis at federal level

The American Society of Cannabis Medicine (ASCM) has announced that members of its leadership have been asked to participate at the Second Annual Update on Medical Cannabis.

The event is presented by the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences of the Medical University of South Carolina. ASCM is a Washington DC-based professional society dedicated to the responsible advancement of medical cannabis.

Garnett Meador, chief executive officer and executive vice president of the ASCM, will speak individually, then join a panel to assess the current state of medical cannabis regulation.


As state after state has legalised medicinal uses of cannabis, or is poised to do so, Garnett Meador who is an experienced businessman and corporate lawyer, will focus on “the good, the bad, and the ugly” of various regulations across the country.

Garnett Meador, EVP for American Society of Cannabis Medicine, said: “We are very pleased to be part of such a strong programme.

“We believe that highly dedicated physicians want to understand as much as they can about medical cannabis so they are able to appropriately help their patients. Gatherings like this help to facilitate the professional advancement of medical cannabis.”

Jeffrey S. Block, MD, a member of the Board of Regents for ASCM, will also speak individually, then join a panel of medical doctors to discuss various clinical aspects of medical cannabis. The Florida-based medical doctor will present a science and bioethics-based overview entitled ‘Cannabis Conundrums’, based on his extensive understanding of the endocannabinoid receptor system and cannabinoids.
