Introduction

This meeting was planned, organized, and conducted by Jag H. Khalsa, Ph.D., of the Center on AIDS and Other Medical Consequences of Drug Abuse (CAMCODA), and Rao Rapaka, Ph.D., of the Division of Neuroscience and Behavioral Research, both within the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH. A group of nationally and internationally recognized clinicians and scientists reviewed the available information and presented and discussed new data on the clinical consequences of marijuana. The topics covered included the general health consequences of marijuana as well as the cardiopulmonary-respiratory, endocrine-reproductive, immune, and treatment of consequences of marijuana. Speakers also touched upon the issue of translating/extrapolating findings from the in vitro and in vivo basic animal models to clinical situations. Finally, they made recommendations for future research. An executive summary of the proceedings for publication in a professional journal is in preparation. In addition, the proceedings will be published as a special supplement to a professional journal.
