Medgar Evers College Cannabis Minor Degree Showcase
The Medgar Evers College (MEC) Chemistry and Environmental Sciences Department is set to host an Outdoor Cannabis Degree Minor Showcase free spring event to bring awareness to the success of its Cannabis Minor Degree Program in partnership with Digital Venture Partners, Black Enterprise, and Green Enterprise. The first MEC degree showcase to be held entirely outdoors will turn a section of Brooklyn’s Crown Street (between Bedford Avenue and Franklin Avenue) alongside the MEC science building into a neighborhood cannabis education festival celebrating the rich diversity of the New York City cannabis community. Rain or shine, the day of education and entertainment will feature DJ sets, live music, food trucks, an overview of the MEC cannabis degree program, student testimonials, and panel discussions. This showcase also has the distinction of being the last stop on the Green Enterprise HBCU College to Career Initiative, with MEC joining other participating PBIs (Predominantly Black Institutions) and HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) from across the country in highlighting the importance of educating communities impacted by the war on drugs on this emerging industry.
