The coronavirus pandemic is a national emergency. Our efforts are focused on controlling its spread in order to manage the outbreak. Due to concerns for public health and safety, we are postponing The Fourteenth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics that was scheduled for May 28-30 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. We are monitoring the course of the pandemic to determine a safe time and place for our conference.
This year not only marks the 25th Anniversary of Patients Out of Time, but also the 50th Anniversary of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 that arbitrarily placed cannabis in the Schedule I (forbidden) level of control. This year’s theme, “The State of the Science.” is supported by renowned faculty with a robust agenda to highlight the current state of cannabis science and clinical practice. We continue to build on our years of professional and educational expertise on cannabis.
Many roadblocks still face patients who want to try cannabis or have trouble affording this herbal remedy. We’re adding two pre-conference workshops on Growing Hemp Best Practices and Preparing Hemp for Health and Healing to support patients. You don’t want to miss our 2020 National Conference and we’ll let you know the time and place as soon as we can make a commitment with confidence.
This is a time for all to recognize the interconnectedness of the human race and help each other rather than look for ways to divide us. Please follow WHO and CDC for recommended precautions to protect yourself, family and community. We will stay in touch through our website and social media . Our fight continues! We will soon be announcing a call to action in which you can take part in support of just cannabis laws.
Special thanks to our sponsors for their support. We are incredibly excited by the success of our first Virtual Symposium. Looking forward to creating more resources for the grater community.
Patients Out of Time has prepared this resolution to De-Schedule Cannabis with the goal of creating a large and ever growing coalition of organizations and individuals to demand the end of the cannabis prohibition. It has been 50 years since the passage of the Controlled Substances Act in which cannabis (marijuana) was placed in the forbidden category of Schedule I, despite several legal proceedings to remove it from the list of controlled substances and clear scientific evidence to support its safety and efficacy. While individual states have passed laws through voter initiatives or legislation to allow patient access to this plant, the overriding federal prohibition looms overhead and creates numerous roadblocks for patient access. We the people need to demand an end to the prohibition of this highly beneficial plant.

Patients Out of Time works to re-institute cannabis as a legitimate medicine for use within the United States. Cannabis, under modern research protocols, has been found to be effective in reducing intraocular pressure in glaucoma, reducing nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, stimulating the appetite for persons living with AIDS and suffering from wasting syndrome, controlling spasticity associated with spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis, treating Dravet Syndrome, reducing the intensity of chronic pain, assisting with treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, and controlling seizures associated with seizure disorders.
