Dr. Patricia Green-Powell

Executive Director's Greeting

Thank you for visiting, the website of Florida A&M University’s Medical Marijuana Education and Research Initiative (MMERI). This is the starting point of MMERI’s mission to enhance the knowledge of Florida’s minority communities about the state’s nascent medical marijuana law (Section 381.986, Florida Statues) and the impact of the unlawful use of marijuana. It is our intention to educate people of color and inspire them to learn and talk about the positive attributes of medical cannabis, as well as help them better understand the legal and health consequences stemming from the unlawful use of marijuana.
