The LSU AgCenter, which will run Louisiana’s medical marijuana program, has contracted with a Nevada-based company to produce cannabis for patients. The vendor, GB Sciences, will work under the LSU AgCenter license and is a publicly traded company, according to a news release. In 2015, the Louisiana legislature enacted a law allowing for the cultivation, production and use of medical marijuana for a narrow list of medical conditions. The law provides that the LSU AgCenter and Southern University Agricultural Center may be licensed for the production of medical marijuana and no taxpayer dollars will be spent on the project.
