Southern University and Agricultural and Medicinal College, a historically black university in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, has solidified its stake in Louisiana’s medical marijuana industry. On Friday, the school’s board of supervisors approved a contract with Advanced Biomedics, a Louisiana-based company specializing in pharmaceutical-grade marijuana products, to partner on the cultivation and production of medical marijuana at Southern’s research facilities. “This is a momentous event,” said Bobby R. Phills, chancellor of the Southern University Agricultural Center and dean of the school’s College of Agricultural, Family and Consumer Sciences, in a news release Friday. “We are extremely excited to be able to provide quality medicine for the citizens of Louisiana.” The HBCU and Louisiana State University are the first public universities in the country set to produce and research marijuana at their facilities.
