Historically, FAMU has played an outstanding role in educating minority students and is in a unique position to educate Florida’s diverse minority populations about medical marijuana and to develop and deliver curriculum and certified training programs.
As a research institution, FAMU offers a vast platform and a cadre of researchers to study and understand the science and the impact of medical marijuana from diverse perspectives.
Community Engagement and education are integral parts of this initiative and will build and expand relationships and partnerships; and collaboration with leaders, community groups, faith base organizations, educational institutions and others.
Partnerships and collaborations with the Florida Association of Broadcasters and other entities will ensure timely delivery of relevant information to communities statewide. MMERI will launch a statewide messaging campaign through various digital, audio, visual, print and in-person platforms.
