    Massachusetts colleges are experimenting with marijuana.

    At least five schools in Massachusetts offer or are rolling out classes or certificate programs for students who want to work in the state’s burgeoning cannabis industry.

    Clark University in Worcester started a graduate certificate in regulatory affairs for cannabis control; Mount Wachusett Community College, also in central Massachusetts, now offers an online career-training program; Holyoke Community College has created a Cannabis Education Center; and Boston University is offering an undergraduate course in the spring for students to research and recommend policy that would make the adult-use marijuana business in the state more socio-economically equitable.
