Medical Marijuana

 

For the first time ever, a cannabis reform bill will make it through the Judiciary Committee during Republican control of the Congress. Sponsored by (R-FL) Rep. Matt Gaetz and 40 other bipartisans, the Medical Cannabis Research Act would require the federal government to issue more licenses to grow marijuana to be used in scientific studies.  For many years, the University of Mississippi has been the only legal source of cannabis for research, but scientists and other industry professionals have often complained that it is difficult to obtain product from the facility and that it is often of low-quality marijuana that is grown there.  High Sobriety, a cannabis-inclusive recovery environment based in Los Angeles, is finding success using medical cannabis to aid in addiction recovery, which could shift the landscape of future recovery approaches. High Sobriety’s recovery methods support a spectrum of recovery alternatives for individuals who have been previously unable to stop using alcohol and/or other drugs like opioids after attending traditional abstinence-based settings.  High Sobriety’s Director of Research and Development, Dr. Sherry Yafai M.D., is a classically trained Emergency Medicine Physician, member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and lead for projects with the UCLA Cannabis Initiative showing that cannabis protocols will assist patients in maintaining long term sobriety. She works with the recovery home to implement a targeted, goal-directed protocol for each individual resident to provide long term sobriety.
