Rheumatology Expert and Medical Marijuana

A rheumatology expert from Dalhousie University believes medical marijuana could be very useful for managing pain and inflammation in arthritis, but needs to be taken more seriously by those in the field.

Jason J. McDougall, PhD, an Associate Professor of Pharmacology and Anaesthesia, was one of the experts who spoke at a session called “Medical Marijuana and the rheumatologist”, reports Rheumatology Update. The session took place during the ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in San Diego and was the first ever to be held on the topic.
