RSMj 2018

We are pleased that the second scientific meeting of RSMj from July 28-30, 2018 was a great success. This meeting was held in the Durrell Center on the beautiful campus of Colorado State University. The full conference program (with poster presentations) is available here! Susan Weiss, Director of the Division of Extramural Research at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), provided a fantastic opening plenary entitled, "How Cannabis Research and Cannabis Policy Can Inform Each Other". Marcel Bonn-Miller, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, provided an excellent closing plenary, "The Complex, Bi-Directional, and Nuanced Associations between Cannabis and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder."
