PRINCESS ANNE, MD – A University of Maryland Eastern Shore professor is among Governor Wes Moore’s appointments to the Cannabis Public Health Advisory Council.

Dr, Madhumi Mitra, a tenured professor of biology and environmental sciences, was named to the Advisory Council that is under the Maryland Department of Health on July 17.

“The use of adult-use cannabis is largely uncharted territory,” Mitra said. “I feel that responsible cannabis use and safeguarding youth must remain at the forefront of any cannabis legalization effort. By addressing the potential risks of cannabis use and implementing evidence-based prevention, education, and support measures, I hope to work with the council members to foster a safe and responsible cannabis landscape that benefits Maryland’s communities and protects its youth from potential harm.”

Mitra holds a doctorate in botany from North Carolina State and in 2021, she was among an elite group of scientists, healthcare professionals, attorneys, and entrepreneurs to earn the first master’s degree in medical cannabis science in the nation from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in Baltimore.
