Castleton University to offer cannabis studies certification

CASTLETON, Vt. (AP) A Vermont university plans to offer a cannabis studies program for students starting this summer.

Castleton University business administration professor Paul Cohen, philosophy professors Brendan Lalor and Joe Markowski, and sociology and anthropology major Phil Lamy – collectively known as the Cannabis Studies Group – proposed the certificate program at a Thursday faculty assembly and received majority support. The Rutland Herald reports the 12-credit program would consist of three three-credit courses and a three-credit internship with a local institution on the philosophy, business or sociology of cannabis cultivation and production.

Lamy says cannabis product companies have already reached out to the university with an interest in the certificate program for employment opportunities.
