LSU AgCenter to hold medical marijuana public forum Oct. 28

(10/07/16) BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU AgCenter will host a public forum on Oct. 28 to provide an in-depth look at the medical marijuana program as it relates to the AgCenter.

Pursuant to Louisiana Revised Statute 40:1046, the AgCenter has opted in to be licensed as a producer for the state’s medical marijuana program. With the state’s budget constraints, the AgCenter has determined that state funds will not be used to finance the operation.

The AgCenter will seek outside investment to fund all aspects of the operation from the physical facility and production operation to the final product formulation.

This meeting will provide an opportunity for parties interested in investing in this program to view and discuss the AgCenter’s business plan.

Attendees will receive updates from the AgCenter on the current and proposed regulations from the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry, Louisiana Board of Pharmacy and the Louisiana Board of Medical Examiners.

The event will take place on the LSU campus at the Digital Media Center Theatre from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Seating is limited to 175, and registration will be required.
