MMERI Forum Radio is an expansion of its successful community forums designed to inform and educate the public about medical marijuana and the impact of the unlawful use of marijuana on Florida’s diverse communities. The initial programming consists of an 8-episode series featuring conversations with pastors, law enforcement, legislators, pharmacists and medical doctors discussing medical marijuana and marijuana.
MMERI was launched following the Florida Legislature’s authorization for the University to establish an initiative to educate “minorities about marijuana for medical use and the impact of the unlawful use of marijuana on minority communities.”
