SRJC, which has trained students to grow wine grapes since the 1970s, said it is the first and only community college in California to establish a hemp cultivation curriculum and plant hemp.

Marijuana use by U.S. college students in 2018 was the highest in 35 years, researchers report.

Miami Dade College officials are working on new classes and a certificate program that'll prepare students for jobs in the medical marijuana industry. But, administrators stress, they won't be teaching kids how to grow weed.
