Relatively recently, I’ve participated in three presentations that I’d like to share: (1) Louisville Bar Association, (2) Louisville Forward Radio, and (3) the KY Harm Reduction Coalition
First is a discussion about the medical potential, as well as the risks, of marijuana.
Here’s four good references I used for the medical marijuana forum…
(1) American Medical Association: https://www.ama-assn.org/delivering-care/public-health/marijuana-policy-should-be-guided-evidence-not-ballot
(2) American Society of Addiction Medicine: https://www.asam.org/docs/default-source/public-policy-statements/2020-public-policy-statement-on-cannabis.pdf?sfvrsn=aa3c58c2_2
(3) American Psychiatric Association: https://www.psychiatry.org/File%20Library/About-APA/Organization-Documents-Policies/Policies/Position-Cannabis-as-Medicine.pdf
(4) Greater Louisville Medical Society (my article begins on page 16): https://viewer.joomag.com/louisville-medicine-volume-69-issue-6/0686559001635953238?short&
And second, I’d like to share a two-part discussion on “the opioid crisis” from Louisville Forward Radio…
Part 1 • March 10, 2022 https://www.forwardradio.org/podcast/episode/9116edf9/single-payer-radio-or-dr-pat-murphy-or-pain-and-addiction-treatment-or-march-10-2022
Part 2 • June 7, 2022 https://www.forwardradio.org/podcast/episode/9212e948/single-payer-radio-addiction-crisis-part-2-dr-pat-murphy-may-2022
And finally, here is a video posted on the Kentucky Harm Reduction Coalition’s Facebook page with me discussing, what else? – Harm Reduction.
We interviewed board member and addiction specialist Dr. James Murphy on all things addiction, harm reduction, and the opioid epidemic. Give it a watch and spread the word – together we can break the stigma!
