Online class, you don’t say…
This is interesting. Scott Rudder, president of the CannaBusiness Association states “The cannabis industry will not flourish in a vacuum,” and we can’t agree more. Why is it that this industry gives access to people with money over knowledge? It doesn’t seem to be a sound decision, to just throw money at a problem. Can cannabis become the first truly equitable industry in the US? Only time will tell.
Even serious marijuana ventures are not above a good pun. That much is clear in the new zero-credit course being offered at Atlantic Cape Community College: “Cannabis 101: Essential Knowledge for a Growing Industry.”
According to a report, 13 students enrolled in the six-week online course.
“It’s an overview,” said Josette Katz, vice president of academic affairs at Atlantic Cape. “Rather than starting out with a credit class, we wanted to gauge the interest that the constituents in Atlantic and Cape May counties had on the topic.”
“The cannabis industry will not flourish in a vacuum,” Scott Rudder, president of the association, told Gannett NJ for a story about the Union County College partnership. “We have to ensure we are training today’s workforce so they are fully prepared to transition into and succeed in the cannabis market.”
