Group wants marijuana studies program on campus

With California getting serious about legalizing marijuana, can university business courses be far behind? No, believes the Treatments, Herbs and Cannabis Foundation. The recently founded Petaluma organization is lobbying for a “Marijuana Business Program” at Sonoma State University.

The program, which would initially offer a bachelor of science degree in business administration, would be “intended for the student who wishes to be involved in the evolution of today’s marijuana industry.”

The foundation, which favors the spread of medical marijuana clubs, also would like to see a “California Marijuana Research Program” and “Authorized/University Operated Production Facilities.” Such programs would help to “bring forward and cleanse an industry currently infiltrated by gangs, criminals and frauds.”

So far, job postings and program details have been placed on Craigslist, an invitation to join the cause is on Facebook and letters have been dispatched to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, San Francisco D.A. Kamala Harris and Petaluma Police Chief Steve Hood, among others.
