Jefferson University offers medical marijuana grad programs

Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia will be offering graduate-level certificate programs in medical marijuana.

The center claims this will be the nation's first graduate-level certificate in medical marijuana.

Marijuana is legal in some form in more than 30 states.
