Training in how to operate dispensaries is a burgeoning industry and MCCC is in on the action. Students can take the non-credit cannabis training program at the college with the upcoming 15 hour course taking place over the summer.
In a survey of 30 MCCC students, half responded that they use marijuana. Of those 88% agreed with legalizing the recreational sale of marijuana.
One student anonymously responded saying, “Yes, it is a great choice economically and medical use has shown many benefits that cigarettes and alcohol never have.”
When students were asked if they thought marijuana affects one’s performance in school, one responded with, “This is not a yes or no. Use it irresponsibly, it will make your life harder, but it can also help people with ADHD and autism perform better.”
It has been proven that marijuana benefits people with ADHD, increasing their dopamine levels allowing them to focus more easily and supporting an overall happier mood.
