Opioids, alcohol, and marijuana are the big three in most discussions of substance abuse but what about synthetic opioids, cannabinoids (K-2), cathinones (Bath Salts), toad licking, nutmeg, mushrooms, and over the counter (OTC) medications. This brief three hour lecture explores the new threats of substances that can be obtained via the internet, new information on the use and abuse of marijuana, the current climate of our opioid crisis, and their influence on you, your family, and your dental practice. This lecture will also fulfil the Georgia Board of Dentistry CE requirement.
