UConn To Offer Cannabis Course, But It’s Not About Getting High

UConn students are going to have the chance to learn how to grow the ideal crop of cannabis next semester, but it has nothing to do with getting high.

It’s all about research, hard science and finding a job in the burgeoning marijuana industry.

UConn Professor Gerard Berkowitz, a plant scientist, said that for years people with an interest in growing cannabis or marijuana would go online and learn how from unaccredited, nonresearch-based programs.
