Dr. Adie Rae Wilson-Poe, The Unintended Negative Impact of Adult-Use Cannabis Legalization on the Wellbeing of Medical Cannabis Patients

March 2023

Dr. Adie Rae Wilson-Poe : “The Unintended Negative Impact of Adult-Use Cannabis Legalization on the Wellbeing of Medical Cannabis Patients” Dr. Wilson-Poe received her BS in Psychology and her PhD in Neuroscience from Washington State University, where she focused on the pain-relieving properties of opioids and cannabinoids.

Adie followed up on this training by taking a post-doctoral position at Sydney University in Australia, where she was awarded a National Research Service Award from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to study the synaptic physiology of cannabinoids and opioids. Dr. Wilson-Poe continued her post-doctoral training at Columbia University, where she broadened her expertise to include the dynamic interaction between drug abuse and chronic pain.

As a junior faculty member at Washington University in St. Louis, Adie was awarded a prestigious Pathway to Independence Award from NIDA, which integrates all previous facets of her work. Adie joined Legacy Research Institute in June of 2019, and she currently utilizes translational and clinical research approaches to further characterize the analgesic and harm-reducing properties of cannabis, in the context of opioid use.
