All Penn Club board members are strictly volunteers and membership dues are used to pay up-front event costs such as securing venues, hotel reservation costs for visiting professors, purchasing food and drinks in advance of an event, etc.

In addition to professional networking, socializing with other alumni, and learning through education-oriented activities, other benefits of membership include: reduced admission fees for all Penn Club events; FREE admission for one guest of your choice to a Penn Club event during the year; and the ability to serve as a Penn Club board member.

The Penn Club of Colorado is pleased to invite you to a very special event featuring Dr. David Casarett. Dr. Casarett is a tenured Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, a faculty member of Penn's  Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, and the Director of Hospice and Palliative Care for the University of Pennsylvania.

Does medical marijuana "work"? Does it have any therapeutic value or is it just an excuse to get high? Does it have any risks? During this talk, Dr. Casarett describes his own journey to answer these questions in the process of researching and writing Stoned: A Doctor's Case for Medical Marijuana. Using a mix of evidence, anecdote, and patient stories, he describes what we know about marijuana's risks and benefits, and how it works.
