In 2000, at the dawn of the new millenium, Patients Out of Time began a long-term series aimed to educate health care professionals and the general public about therapeutic cannabis, or medical marijuana. This biannual event celebrated their 10th Anniversary this past April 15-17 in Warwick, Rhode Island and was also sponsored by the University of California School of Medicine, and continuing education credits were also offered for physicians and nurses. The Rhode Island State Nurses Association, American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine and Mothers Against Misuse and Abuse were also on hand, amongst many of the world’s most renowned researchers and physicians on cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system and two of four remaining Federal Medical Marijuana Program were also in attendance.Read More
As the Iowa Board of Pharmacy (BOP) listens to Patients Out Of Time, a medical marijuana patient advocacy group made up of physicians on the medicinal benefits of medical cannabis. Al Byrne, a member of the group, delivered some 50,000 pages of medical marijuana research supporting the effectiveness of marijuana as medicine, as part of a larger presentation to the Board.

Patients Out of Time will be holding their bi-annual medical marijuana conference this coming April 16-18 in Warrick, Rhode Island.Read More
