Tampa, Fla. Reading, writing and arithmetic. Now, students are taking on classes with a new subject: reefer.

Officials have converted an old cigar factory into a classroom that teaches the advantages of medical marijuana, and how it can help alleviate patient's chronic pain.

So far 20 states have legalized the use of medical marijuana, and Tennessee may not be far behind.
