NEOMED Psychiatrist Writes on Medical Marijuana Risks for KevinMD Blog

“We must allow our citizens to make informed choices. A page on a website, a label on a box. The platforms exist. It’s time we use them properly.”

So says Erik Messamore, M.D., Ph.D., a psychiatrist and associate professor of psychiatry at Northeast Ohio Medical University, addressing what he sees as a dangerous lack of information about possible risks posted on medical marijuana websites.

In a podcast conversation with Kevin Pho, the founder of KevinMD, Dr. Messamore talks about his background in pharmacology and psychiatric practice. He also discusses the topics covered in his article “Many medical marijuana program websites are silent about possible risks.”
