A new class designed to teach people how to grow marijuana is expected to create a lot of buzz in Windsor, Ont.
Leo Lucier plans to start the classes later this month at his downtown cannabis vaping lounge, which already provides a space for medical marijuana users to consume their pot.
Launching what he calls the School of Higher Learning at his Vapelated Lounge will depend on what new regulations the federal government introduces.
In February, a Federal Court judge struck down regulations restricting the rights of medical marijuana patients to grow their own cannabis, giving Ottawa six months to come up with new rules.
No one has signed up for classes yet, but Lucier doesn’t suspect he’ll have any difficulties finding students.
Despite his enthusiasm, Windsor police warn that anyone caught growing pot illegally could face charges. Spokesman Const. Andrew Drouillard also warns about the dangers of growing marijuana.
