The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced it is hosting a series of conversations about alternatives to opioid-based pain medication. A leading medical marijuana advocacy group is working to take advantage of the opportunity to educate the federal government about the benefits of cannabis. A staffer with Americans for Safe Access (ASA) recently submitted a request to CDC to take part in one of the about 100 individual conversations the agency plans to hold about pain management issues with interested parties. The deadline to submit a request for a meeting is Friday, and ASA Executive Director Debbie Churgai reported that the organization plans to send additional requests before the end of the week, and is urging others to do so as well.
