Louisiana is one of the first states in the deep South to allow medicinal marijuana. Dr. Tommy Estis, a substance abuse counselor, thinks we may be moving too fast.
Dr. Estis will join panelists from the University of Louisiana Monroe School of Pharmacy and Sensible Marijuana Policy for Louisiana for a discussion about benefits and risks of marijuana. The discussion includes the laws and regulations that patients will have to follow.
Policy and a Pint is Tuesday, May 15. A "meet and greet" with the panel begins at 5:30 p.m. and the radio discussion will begin at 6 p.m.
The program will be broadcast on Tuesday, May 22, at 6 p.m. on 90.3FM KEDM Public Radio.
