Cannabis (marijuana) has recently garnered significant national attention as more states vote to legalize both medicinal and recreational forms of the substance. Cannabis use in end-of-life care is increasingly being sought by patients, and organizations are caught between strict federal regulations and differing state laws. The purpose of this presentation is to review the evidence-based indications for medical cannabis use, as well as a discussion of where it fits into hospice care.
