Students at Kwantlen Polytechnic University can now sign up for a class with high stakes: the school in British Columbia is offering a course called “Introduction to Professional Management of Marijuana for Medical Purposes in Canada.”
The class will take place online over 14 weeks, the CBC reports. Since the legality of marijuana is being fought out in the courts in Canada (currently it is only approved for medicinal use, and regulations vary by region), the course will focus on educating students about following the rules to grow a legitimate business. Only 25 growing facilities are currently federally licensed in the country.
Similar courses have already popped up throughout the U.S.: the University of Denver Sturm College of Law offered a class on “Representing the Marijuana Client”; Vanderbilt University School of Law taught “Marijuana Law and Policy”; and Harvard University Law School taught “Tax Planning for Marijuana Dealers.”
