A twist on higher education

It's higher education - with the emphasis on the high.

Oaksterdam University in Oakland, California, is teaching how to grow pot, and cook with it, too.

The $200, two-day course prepares students for jobs in California's thriving medical marijuana industry.

But working in a pot clinic has its risks. While California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana, the weed is still illegal under federal law.

Some of the so-called medical marijuana clubs have been subjected to periodic busts by the feds.
