Something that once could have gotten students in big legal trouble at college may now be a budding career path. The University of Connecticut is in spring 2019 going to offer a new course on marijuana and what it takes to work in the industry. It is already causing a buzz. “We ran out of seats before half of the university could register for the course,” Professor Gerard Berkowitz, who will be teaching the class, told the Hartford Courant. “There’s going to be more students taught in this one class than in my department, all the professors, all the classes they teach, both semesters.” Berkowitz , a plant scientist, said the course — called the Horticulture of Cannabis: From Seed to Harvest — will be taught in a lecture hall with over 400 seats.
