BATON ROUGE – Southern University will unveil its first-ever THC medical marijuana products Wednesday.

The announcement scheduled for 10 a.m. is the culmination of a process which began in 2017, making the college one of the first in the state to begin developing its own medical marijuana-based products. The school says it also makes Southern the only HBCU to launch a line of THC and CBD products available in Louisiana.

The announcement also comes in the wake of new legislation which gives Louisiana doctors greater flexibility in prescribing marijuana-based treatments.
