Dr. Erik Messamore

Mental Health Risks of Marijuana

CURESZ on Campus clubs invites you to join us on Monday February 28th at 7pm Eastern Standard Time for a lecture to be presented by Erik Messamore, MD, PhD. The title of the lecture is “Mental Health Risk of Marijuana.” The lecture will be streamed virtually via zoom.

Marijuana has more fans than broccoli. Although some people like how marijuana makes them feel, others react badly to it. After all, anything strong enough to affect mood or perception is strong enough to create some risks.

This presentation will highlight well-documented, scientifically-credible, short-term and long-term mental health risks of marijuana. It will explain how the pharmacology of cannabis can intersect with the biochemistry of mental illness. Although any adult should be free to choose whether or not to use marijuana, everyone should understand how it works and what the risks might be.

This talk is free to the public. Please RSVP soon as spaces are limited!

You can RSVP here.

We hope to see you next month!
