Call for Papers

Deadline: 1 May 2020

Cannabis in Later Life

The Clinical Gerontologist is now accepting papers for a special issue on Cannabis in Later Life edited by Marie Y. Savundranayagam, PhD and Zachary S. Sager, MD.  Papers can focus on the use of cannabis and/or cannabis derived products for therapeutic or recreational use among older adults. We also welcome papers on problematic cannabis use in this population.  Papers can include comparisons between older adults and other age groups. We welcome reviews, original research studies and clinical comments. 

We are seeking a wide range of articles including research papers on prevalence, risk factors, and outcome trials as well as papers that address topics such as stigma, policy/law and implementation approaches in clinical practice. We also welcome papers that address the relationships between cannabis use and common considerations in later life such as driving, pain and palliative care. The Clinical Gerontologist presents research relevant to behavioral health concerns in later life. Papers must address implications on mental health policy and/or practice.  We are particularly interested in reflecting diverse and international populations.
