Medical Marijuana/CBD: An ADA Compliance Perspective

  • Registration Closed

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.
