Tampa has a newcollege, and it is teaching something that is unusual to say the least. Itcould be called "Cannabis College."

Around 20 studentsgathered in a meeting room at a downtown hotel Tuesday for their first class.

The school costs $500.Over the course of 16 hours, students will learn the history of cannabis, howto grow it, and what jobs may be available if Floridians give medical marijuanaa thumbs up in November.

The school's founder,Jeremy Bufford, is sure the referendum will be passed. If it is, he said heplans to hire more than 300 employees to work at 15 planned treatment centersand a lab. He said he plans to build them in Bradenton, New Port Richey,Lakeland, and elsewhere.

One of the students,Cliff Burt, hopes to get a job from Bufford.

 "When I saw the opportunity to mixmarijuana and business, I couldn't be happier," he said.

He also said he came tolearn more about the medical effect of marijuana because he has stomachproblems.
