Pot Luck: First NE College Program for Medical Marijuana

The New England School of Alternative Horticultural Studies will launch the first professional medical marijuana training class in the northeastern U.S. in September in Warwick, R.I.

With operations in Rhode Island, Maine and Vermont, the school will teach qualified patients and caregivers about the latest indoor medical marijuana cultivation techniques and legal compliance at a fraction of the prices New England students would pay at similar schools in California and Colorado.

Rhode Island law allows registered patients or their caregivers to grow a certain number of marijuana plants indoors for personal medical purposes.

About 20% of class proceeds will be donated directly to causes such as AIDS and cancer research, cannabis law reform and other patient advocacy programs.
