Today we wanted to get a bit more practical with our episode and talk to a doctor with boots-on-the-ground experience, deeply involved with certification and counseling in the medical cannabis field in Florida.
Dr. Thomas Trincetto attended Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore (with Hal & Les). He then became board-certified in Internal Medicine and Emergency Medicine and moved to Sarasota in 2001, where he has remained since then. Most of his clinical career was spent practicing Emergency Medicine, though there was also a 4 year period he spent practicing full-time inpatient Critical Care Medicine. In 2014 he transitioned to an administrative role as the Chief Medical Officer at Doctors Hospital of Sarasota and remained in that role until retiring in October 2019. For the past year, Dr. Trinchetto has worked part-time performing patient medical marijuana certifications.
He talks with Hal & Les about getting into the cannabis field after retirement, the process of getting certified in Florida, and a bit about his practice.
