Maryland Professor aims to roll out medical marijuana certificate program

It all started with a single college course.

“It is ‘BPA 227 — Entrepreneurial Opportunity in Expanding Markets: Cannabis Legalization,” Shad Ewart, chair of the Department of Business Management at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland, tells High Times. “That is a mouthful, but that was part of the compromise. I had wanted the title to be ‘Ganjaprenuership.’”

Ewart is referring to the standalone course he currently teaches at Anne Arundel. He first taught BPA 227 back in January 2015, largely as a response to the growing interest students had in cannabis and legalization.

Diary of a visitor: experiencing the seed-to-sale process, step-by-step

Cannabis is big business, but it is also a step-by-step process. And that process of taking a single seed to growing it into the plant that will land in retail stores or online, is in-depth. All this is fairly new, at least on the commercial level.

“If you were to hire a consultant who grew tomatoes, he would say, ‘This is the plant food we’ve had the best results with, this is the operating temperature and this is the way to grow a great crop of tomatoes,’” says Edwin Jewell, president of PEI-based grower, FIGR.

Irish farmers 'could be given licences to grow cannabis in the future'

Irish farmers could be given licences to grow cannabis for medicinal use in the future. 

The Department of Health told TheJournal.ie that while legislation currently prohibits farmers from growing cannabis, this policy could change. 

“Policy to date has not permitted the cultivation of cannabis for medical use and no licences have been issued for this activity.

“However recent developments on access to cannabis for medical use may prompt a review of this position in the future,” said the department.

It’s two years since Health Minister Simon Harris announced that a medicinal cannabis access programme is to be established, but as of yet no scheme has been rolled out.

The first rule of cannabis coding: well, there are no rules...yet. Legal cannabis is still very much the digital Wild West for coders.

The lounge initially teamed up with Jamison Ordway, a software engineer and regular Coffee Joint visitor, to give cannabis technology (dubbed "cannatech" by those who work in it) a meeting point.

Gov’t shutdown holds up hemp farmers, keeps non-violent drug offenders in jail

Primary schools are being forced to ration vegetables and TSA employees are too “sick” to work airport security without pay– the federal government shutdown is undeniably wreaking havoc on the United States. And the cannabis world is far from immune, either: waterless hemp farmers and non-violent drug offenders stuck in prison are anxiously waiting for Trump’s wall gambit just like the rest of us.
