MEDICAL MARIJUANA AWARENESS DAYS
Accessible, Approachable Cannabis Education for the Everyday Patient
What are Medical Marijuana Awareness Days?
Medical Marijuana Awareness Days are a series of conferences held throughout Florida with a goal to educate the public on the benefits of medical marijuana with an accessible and balanced platform.
Each conference is a little different, to include local organizations and resources, but there is a set of core aspects which are repeated at each event to provide a comprehensive base understanding of medical marijuana education before delving into specifics.
Past speakers at MMAD conferences have included physicians, MM providers, pharmacists, psychologists, medical marijuana industry leaders, dispensary representatives, condition-specific patient advocate groups, and long-time medical marijuana patients.
• What is Medical Marijuana?
• The Human Endocannabinoid System (ECS)
• How do you get a CC Card?
• Medical Marijuana Applications
• MM Doctor and Patient Panel Testimonials
Throughout the conference, attendees are encouraged to submit questions into a box, to be answered in the last presentation as an open, interactive Question and Answer Session with medical marijuana experts from previous presentations.
Meet and Greet
In between presentations, medical marijuana groups and organizations are available at booths around the room to speak with attendees and offer their experience and insight into the medical marijuana industry and patient community.
The Team Behind the Events
Medical Marijuana Awareness Days were jump-started by Marc Matoza and Linda Bruce of Marijuana Med Today [MMT] They noticed the medical marijuana events being held through Florida were not targeted for patients and did not provide patients educational information. AND most of the conference had high admission costs, which were prohibitive for most Floridian’s in need of Compassionate Care.
Marc and Linda teamed up with the Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of Florida [MMTC], gathered a team of physicians, pharmacists, medical marijuana leaders, and patients to plan and host a series of conferences that would be approachable for people entirely new to medical cannabis, yet useful for long-time patients. Through a combination of speakers, practical product introduction, and interaction with medical experts and experienced patients, attendees can learn about how medical marijuana works within the human body and on different conditions, as well as how to navigate the system of laws and regulation surrounding medical marijuana prescriptions in Florida.
Marijuana Med Today [MMT] is a cannabis education website that uses easy-to-access technology to provide an approachable resource to introduce and educate the public on the diverse benefits of medical marijuana, as well as to equip people with access to credible product resources.
