Tomorrow, May 8, 2014, in Portland, Oregon, the eighth annual Patients Out of Time Conference will begin through May 10, 2014. The focus of this year's conference is on The Endocannabinoid System and Age Related Illness which is designed to attract a wider audience of those interested in learning more about cannabis as medicine. Attendees can earn CME and CLE credits and there is a chance for attending remotely.
Florida Cannabis Action Network (FLCAN) president Cathy Jordan will be attending the conference. FLCAN is based in Melbourne, Florida and has been a leading resource to legalize cannabis in Florida for many years. Libertarians have also been supportive of legalizing cannabis and feel it should be completely legal to purchase and to grow in one's backyard without interference from the government.
Patients Out of Time brings together patients, caregivers, industry leaders and the best medical cannabis researchers in the world. This year’s event features such notables as Donald Abrams, M.D. of UCLA, Sunil Aggarwal, M.D., Ph.D., and Valerie Corral, co-founder of the Wo/Men's Alliance for Medical Marijuana.
