Tuesday, July 3, 2018 NELSONVILLE — Hocking College will become a state testing lab for medical marijuana, after being announced as one of two colleges in the state to be approved for a provisional license. The Ohio Medical Marijuana Control Program announced on its website that Hocking College and Central State University were approved for provisional licenses, pending final reviews of the testing labs. The two institutions were the only public universities in the state to apply, but the state says there is no limit to the number of testing lab licenses that can be awarded. Seven privately-held laboratories have applied for licenses, but no announcement has been made. Last September, Hocking College President Betty Young announced the school’s plan to apply and create new majors around the cannabis testing lab. Dr. Jonathan Cachat was chosen to lead the development of curriculum. Hocking College To Become Cannabis Testing Lab
