CRETE – Doane University plans to offer a three-course online program this fall on the cannabis industry, which produces hemp and marijuana.
The Doane program will cover the science of cannabis, health and wellness aspects of it, cultivation and processing, regulations, and professions in the industry.
In May, Nebraska passed a hemp law under which cannabis with a THC level of less than 0.3 percent is legal.
Doane, a private university based in Crete, Nebraska, intends to start the program in October or November, Holmes said. Those who complete the program will receive a certificate.
