(I am NOT an attorney, but I will be inviting some of the most experienced and knowledgeable attorneys to join us)
Notes from Seminars and Meetings I attend.
Also I am excited to be moving forward in providing seminars to doctors wanting to consider the use of Medical Cannibus with their patients. Why? See my current blog! http://drfranklucido.blogspot.com
Especially the following prior posts, which will be part of my core curriculum for physicians:

AIMLegal (Association of Independent Medical-Legal Consultants)
AIMLegal Physician Locator:
In my many years of working with Medicinal Cannabis I have noticed time and time again that the marginal doctors out there tend to give Medicinal Cannabis a bad name and they can find themselves in trouble with the California Medical Board (and their patients in trouble with law enforcement).
This makes most practicing physicians hesitant to include cannabis in their list of options.
How do we change this?
My intention is to train MORE doctors in making safe and appropriate cannabis recommendation for their patients!
I am forming AIMLegal (Association of Independent Medical-Legal Consultants).
My hand-picked experts will be listed on my AIMLegal Physician Locator:
At present it includes some of the pioneers in the medical cannabis movement, especially the founding members of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine (AACM).
It will eventually include whom I consider to be the best cannabis physicians in each of the 14 medical cannabis states.
The initial AIMLegal seminar will take place in the Bay Area in San Francisco, California, Saturday February 27, 2010.
We also plan to have one in April or May in Michigan. Please contact me directly if you are a doctor interested in attending either of these seminars or if you know of a doctor you believe would be interested in attending.
For further physician education, let your doctor know about the
Sixth National Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics!
Patients Out of Time’s Sixth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics set to take place April 15-17, 2010 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick, Rhode Island.
The conference, titled Cannabis: The Medicine Plant, will explore the science and clinical efficacy of medical cannabis.
The AACM will have a program the next day, April 18, 2010 at the same facility in Rhode Island.
Stay tuned for more on this!
