April 18, 2018: Marijuana, Mushrooms, Plants, and Drugs: Poisoning Tales from the Trenches

Date: April 18, 2018
Time: 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Location: Herbst Hall, UCSF Mount Zion Campus 1600 Divisadero (between Post and Sutter St.) San Francisco
Fee: Free
Speaker: Raymond Ho PharmD, DABAT, Anita Ma PharmD CSPI

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.

Register online at or call 415-885-3678 on the recording hotline.
