Plants of the Gods-Their Sacred, Healing and Hallucinogenic Powers

This program will explore some of the popular Psychotropic Plants such as Ayahuasca/DMT, Psilocybin, Peyote/Mescaline, Iboga and more. These plants are currently being researched for their potential use in therapies for treatment of substance and psychosomatic disorders. While some of the plants are not illegal the active ingredients are not which is controversial and will surely lead to a “spirited” discussion.

Cannabis/CBD/Vaping –A Part of the New Normal

This program will address the history of cannabis and how commercialization is changing the public perception and what they are not telling you about the hidden dangers of the New Cannabis. CBD, can it really be the cure-all? What are the harmful effects? Vaping, the toxic fad that endangers the health of millions. What is in the e-juice? What other substances are being used in this new drug delivery system?

Drugs of Abuse Update

This session will provide an updated overview of what Poison Control Centers are experiencing regarding the current drug trends including new synthetic drugs, opiates and heroin.
