Schenectady college may offer program in marijuna growing (Daily Gazette)

Fiorello Pharmaceuticals has pledged to provide $100,000 to SCCC if it is one of five contractors chosen by the state Health Department to provide marijuana to patients suffering from certain medical conditions. The New York City-based company would open a facility in Glenville if it gets a license and is looking to launch a medical cannabis certificate program in Schenectady — the first in the nation, according to Fiorello — as part of a job-training partnership with the two-year college. The college may also help train developmentally disabled people to work at the facility. More>>>
