Medical cannabis is becoming the latest trend and less of a threat when it comes to the drug industry.
The support of medical marijuana has grown within the past few years across the country due to the passing of government laws that now support the distribution of what is now considered “civil and not criminal” (SOURCE)
Recently, Black American Web is reporting that HBCU institutions have shown an interest in the drug.
Here’s the story:
Southern University and Agricultural and Medicinal College in Baton Rouge will launch a medical marijuana program after a contract with Advanced Biomedics, a Louisiana-based company specializing in pharmaceutical-grade marijuana products, was approved on Friday (May 25). The move will make the HBCU the first to start a program about legalized cannabis, WAFB, a Baton Rouge news source, reported.
Southen University has joined the cannabis ranks with Louisiana State University, with both public schools set to cultivate and research marijuana in campus facilities, Mic reported. No other institutions have been designated as legal growers and researchers of medical cannabis in the state, which legalized the substance in 2016 but prohibited recreational use.
