Science and Law Experts Discuss Marijuana, CBD, and Delta 8

With the growing legalization of medical and recreational marijuana in states across the country, as well as growth in use of CBD and Delta 8, what does current science say about the efficacy of its use and its short and long-term impacts on your body? What are the current legal trends for these substances in the United States?

To delve into these questions, Larry Marnett, Ph.D., dean of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Basic Sciences, for the school’s monthly Lab-to-Table Conversation, moderated a discussion on Sept. 23, 2021 about the science of marijuana and the current legal context for its use with the following panelists:
