With medical marijuana legal in 23 states and the District of Columbia and no fewer than three separate bills proposing the same for Pennsylvania now pending in the state legislature, the Wecht Institute will be kicking off the 2015-16 season of its professional education series, Forensic Fridays, with an interdisciplinary group of experts presenting on and discussing various aspects of the debate.

Terry Donnelly of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Traffic Unit; Thomas Perko, president of the Pennsylvania Medical Cannabis Society; Dr. Fred Fochtman, Associate Professor of Pharmacology-Toxicology and Director of Forensic Science and Law Masters Program at Duquesne University; and Institute namesake Dr. Cyril Wecht for this timely educational opportunity.
