MMERI Forum Radio is an expansion of its 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. MMERI Forum Radio is a weekly hour of content presenting issues and topics in cannabis.
The MMERI was launched in response to the Florida Legislature’s funding allocation to educate “minorities about marijuana for medical use and the impact of the unlawful use of marijuana on minority communities.”
