This is well timed … given that it’s 4/20. Loyalist College in Belleville says it plans to offer the first cannabis applied science program in Canada. They say the eight-month post-graduate certificate program is being launched thanks to funding from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. Loyalist President Ann Marie Vaughan says with the expected legalization of recreational marijuana this summer, there is increasing demand for post-secondary programs related to the industry. Students will learn both inside the college’s state-of-the-art Health Canada licensed facility and outside the classroom during field placements with licensed producers.
