Marijuana, Mushrooms, Plants, and Drugs: Poisoning Tales from the Trenches

Unintentional poisoning accounts for 78% of all exposures reported nationally to US poison centers. Nearly half of the poisoning exposures reported to US poison centers involved children less than 6 years old. In California, accidental ingestions of poisonous plants and mushrooms have led to hospitalization and death.

Since the passing of Proposition 64, adult use of marijuana is now legal in California, while it remains illegal under federal law. Accidental poisonings and adverse reactions to marijuana containing products are on the rise. Coupling its use with other drugs and or alcohol can increase the danger of overdose. Please join us in the following lecture as Raymond Ho, PharmD, DABAT, and Anita Ma, PharmD, CSPI from the California Poison Center, San Francisco Division and Assistant Clinical Professors at the UCSF School of Pharmacy, share their expert knowledge with us. This is a free and bilingual (English/Cantonese) lecture. All are welcome.

意外中毒佔向美國毒物中心中毒全國報告之78%。美國毒物中心的報告有接近一半之中毒涉及6歲以下的兒童。在加州有意外攝入有毒植物和蘑菇而導致住院和死亡的個案。自從加州64號提案通過以來,現在成年人在加州使用大麻是合法的,雖然根據聯邦法律它仍然是非法。含大麻產品導致的意外中毒和不良反應正在增加。如果將大麻與其他藥物和/或酒精同時使用會增加用葯過量或死亡的危險。所以我們特邀了加州毒物中心和加州大學舊金山分校藥學院助理臨床教授之何恩鴻和馬芝頴,與我們分享他們對大麻的專業知識,這是一個免費的雙語(英語/廣東話)講座,歡迎參加。
