BOCA RATON, Fla. – A local university is offering up several programs geared to help its students succeed in the cannabis business.

Florida Atlantic University is offering courses in several areas including cannabis in healthcare, agriculture, law and policy and licensing to sell the product.

The programs, which partner with Green Flower, are six-month programs that cost $2,950 per term.

Currently, recreational marijuana is illegal in the state of Florida. However, medical marijuana treatment is currently legal in the Sunshine State and is sold only at state-approved dispensaries.
