Date: July 22, 2016

Please join Joe Kelley, Partner in Offit Kurman’s Health Care and Medical Cannabis Groups and Chair of its Privacy and Data Security Practices Group, and medical cannabis attorney and thought leader Darren Weiss for the next installment of The Cannabusiness Key, Beyond the Hippocratic Oath: Healthcare Issues for your Cannabusiness.

This episode will discuss the varied and far-ranging issues that health care practitioners and providers, and cannabusinesses employing health care practitioners, face when participating in the cannabis industry. Key questions addressed will include:

· Risks faced by physicians and other practitioners in writing certifications and providing ongoing treatment

· Risks faced by pharmacists in participating in dispensary businesses

· Ethical and licensure implications

· Consequences to ongoing participation in federal health care programs

· Health care “Fraud and Abuse” considerations

· DEA licensure and criminal exposure

· HIPAA and other privacy implications

· Structural considerations for compliance

While there are many restrictions and considerations that health care providers and cannabusinesses must consider, Joe and Darren hope to debunk some of the widely-held myths that currently inhibit provider participation. Joe and Darren will propose some practical tips to encourage provider involvement while fostering compliance, and provide further information to help you navigate your way through these issues.
