CannabizMD and Tea Pad Founder and CEO Jacquie Cohen Roth. M.S. – a graduate of the inaugural class of the Master of Science in Medical Cannabis Science and Therapeutics program at the University of Maryland School Of Pharmacy – now an adjunct professor of the same program – believes that this program is an invaluable resource for a growing industry across the U.S. that is subject to regular change including the impact of adult use legalization on a medical program.

This is particularly relevant now as eight states have an adult use referendum on the ballot in November.

“The cannabis industry in the country is still very much in its infancy, and still federally illegal with a patchwork of state regulations across the U.S.,” said Cohen Roth. “Success in this exciting and groundbreaking industry requires ongoing education on cannabis science and policy with constant dialogue between industry stakeholders like those CannabizMD and Tea Pad host.”
