SUMMARY: Implementing a novel structured, community-based educational intervention, this project strives to increase individuals’ knowledge surrounding the medical use of marijuana and the impacts of medical marijuana and the unlawful use of marijuana in minority communities. The study will assess pre- and post-coping styles, substance awareness (knowledge), self-reported efficacies, and ability to regulate marijuana usage, as well as overall wellness level (namely anxiety, depression, and physiological responses).
