Florida Gulf Coast University offered its first class on medical cannabis, called ‘Weed: The impact of marijuana on American life’ in the fall of 2018. Since then, it has continued to scale up its offerings including a cannabis focus under the Integrated Studies major.

It will soon be presenting its fourth Cannabis Professional Certificate Program that focuses on things like cannabis history, laws and policies relating to the plant, and cannabis as a business. And, it's going entirely online this time. We're joined by Dr. Martha Rosenthal, professor of neuroscience and physiology and Director of FGCU’s Cannabis Research, Education, and Workforce initiative to learn more.

The workshop begins on July 11 and runs through August 7.
