Episode Features Certified Cannabis Physician Dr. Terel Newton
Florida medical marijuana physician Terel Newton, MD, talked cannabis and COVID-19 as the inaugural guest on the newly-launched Florida A&M University Medical Marijuana Education and Research Initiative’s (MMERI) videocast.
Dr. Newton is a practicing certified cannabis doctor who specializes in pain management. On this inaugural show, he discusses the intersection between cannabis and COVID-19, highlighting respiratory issues and cannabis dosing.
FAMU MMERI launched the videocast so that social distancing Floridians could still see the same experts who are featured in MMERI neighborhood public forums. Using teleconferencing technology, the videocast combines the components of the community forum and the successful weekly radio program.
MMERI Videocast can be found on MMERI’s Facebook page Conversations on Cannabis. The audio version is available on the radio in 17 Florida counties, under the name MMERI Forum Radio.
FAMU’s 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.”
