KPhA Policy Position on Medical Marijuana
KPhA does not endorse or oppose proposed legislation in the General Assembly related to Medical Marijuana. Rather, KPhA has adopted a Policy Position. KPhA supports regulatory changes to further facilitate clinical research related to the clinical efficacy and safety associated with the use of cannabis and its various components. Also, we support pharmacist participation in furnishing cannabis and its various components if and when specific data support the legitimate medical use of the products and delivery mechanisms, and federal, state, or territory laws or regulations permit pharmacists to furnish them. Pharmacists always should be involved in reviewing a patient’s complete medication regimen. KPhA opposes pharmacist involvement in furnishing cannabis and its various components for recreational use.
