Maryland university cancels medical marijuana courses

The University of Maryland’s School of Pharmacy has called off courses that had been scheduled for┬ástudents planning careers in the medical marijuana field.

The college made the decision after “consulting with the Maryland attorney general’s office” and then decided to err on the side of caution because of marijuana’s ongoing status as a Schedule 1 controlled substance and the Trump administration’s lack of a clear policy on cannabis, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The school has suspended the MMJ program indefinitely, the newspaper reported, including proposed courses in cultivation, manufacturing, dispensing, laboratory standards and assessments.

Whether the program will be reinstated at some point is still up in the air, and pharmacy school officials did not respond to requests for comment from the Sun.
