Former New England Patriot Kicks Off Rhode Island Convention

Keynote Speaker Announced for 4th Annual Rhode Island Cannabis Convention

Super Bowl Champion Eric Martin Will Speak on Saturday, October 20th at 11:45am

[PROVIDENCE, RI] October 11, 2018 — Eric Martin, formerly of the New England Patriots and member of the Super Bowl Championship team in 2014, sustained head injuries that would affect him for the rest of his life. Like many players, he was given opioids to deal with his pain and to keep him out on the field. As players age, they face a number of challenges – among them, the realization that the painkillers do not heal injuries but continue to mask them.

Armed with this knowledge, Eric and others are now calling on the NFL to change its policies towards cannabis use, assist to normalize cannabis in public forums, and reduce the stigma that keeps effective medicine from those who would benefit from its use. Eric spends his time speaking to student athletes and adults alike on the use of cannabis for health and wellness and recovering from athletic injuries, including CTE.

Eric Martin appears on the Main Stage at 11:45 on Saturday, October 20
