Concerns about spice have prompted Kansas, Kentucky, Alabama, Arkansas and Missouri to regulate K2, one brand under which spice is sold, or the substance’s active ingredient.

The Tempe Union High School District’s No Parent Left Behind University program will host a workshop for parents and community members to provide information about the synthetic cannabis drug Spice.

The workshop will be 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2, at Evans-Compadre Academy multipurpose room, 4525 S. College Ave., Tempe.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) December 6, 2010
The event will be held at the Renaissance Hotel & Spa in Glendale, Arizona. Three educational tracks will focus on healthcare guidelines and patient care, legal and workplace issues and dispensary set up and agriculture. The expo floor will include a dynamic blend of vendors, including consultants, delivery systems, professional services, publications, agriculture, associations, equipment and accessories catering to the medical marijuana community. Green Relief will offer a professional forum for the uninitiated, under-informed and reticent potential patients and physicians who may be unaware of medical marijuana as a potential treatment option, but who otherwise lack the understanding needed to make an educated determination on its appropriateness for their condition.

Guest speakers include inspiring leaders in the field of medical marijuana who will be addressing the challenges and opportunities that patients, healthcare providers and businesses are encountering as they adapt to the new medical marijuana marketplace. Topics will include the status of Arizona guidelines for the use, distribution and regulation of medical marijuana, dispensary how-to’s, medical card guidelines and the latest delivery systems.

Rick Ells, co-founder of Big Truck Media Group says, “Since Arizona voters passed Prop 203 in November, businesses have been scrambling to take advantage of the opportunities medical marijuana offers. Green Relief will bring patients, healthcare providers as well as business owners together to educate and inform in this rapidly expanding medical marijuana marketplace. Three educational tracks will concurrently address patients and healthcare providers, legal and legislative issues and dispensary how-to’s. Our conference is designed to provide up-to-date educational information as well as a comprehensive exposition of vendors in the medical marijuana community.”
