With the recent legalization of recreational marijuana use, FLCC is now offering courses focusing on cannabis as part of their horticulture program.
After students expressed interest in the topic, three courses have begun. These courses include a focus on the history and use of the cannabis plant, the current regulation and legality surrounding cannabis, and the process of cultivating marijuana.
According to Berna Ticonchuk, the technical specialist for the college’s Environmental Conservation and Horticulture Department, almost 50% of the students in the horticulture program have registered for something relating to cannabis. 21 students enrolled in the 2020 cannabis track program out of the 32 students in the horticulture program.
FLCC is on track to expanding the number of classes due to the popularity of the currents ones; they are currently filled to capacity.
