This lecture will be devoted to marijuana. Thirty-two states have legalized marijuana for medical use. Ten states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. Inevitably, some of these marijuana users will be treated by the dentist or hygienist. What is it? Does it have any medicinal use? Is marijuana addicting? What are the effects of marijuana on driving ability? What are the effects of marijuana on intellectual development? What are “shatter,” “wax,” “dab,” or “scat,” and how do they differ? Is edible marijuana as effective as smoking or vaping? This presentation will discuss some of the concerns about marijuana use/abuse and its bearing on dental treatment.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • The physical characteristics of marijuana
