  • Medical Marijuana/CBD: An ADA Compliance Perspective

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This webinar will teach you what you need to know regarding the use of medical marijuana and CBD oil, and how ADA laws may affect your agency.

    33 states and the District of Columbia permit the use of prescribed medical marijuana. CBD oil, also known as hemp oil, is a legal product so long as it has less than 0.3% THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Both products have a known history of pain relief. Do they rise to the level of a reasonable modification, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act? Are your staff ready to hold and administer these as a reasonable modification for registrants with a disability? This webinar will explore the use of these products from an ADA perspective, and discuss how some parks and recreation agencies are managing this new frontier.

    NRPA Education online learning content is accessible for 180 days from the date of your registration. The learning content is available for registration for one year from the date of origination.
