US (MO): NWMSU offering cannabis education program

Northwest Missouri State University has partnered with Green Flower, a cannabis education provider to offer non-credit certificate programs.
The program includes The Business of Cannabis, Cannabis Agriculture and Horticulture, Cannabis Law and Policy and Cannabis Healthcare and Medicine.

All courses are offered fully online and are divided into three eight-week courses.
“Well, in the business of this enterprise certificate, it’s not designed to start your own marijuana farm or marijuana business, it’s more designed to help people get jobs,” Dr. Jay Johnson, associate provost of academic operations and development with Northwest Missouri State University, said. “They could have a management degree, but the problem is going to be they have no idea what they’re going to do if they were to join that industry. There’s a lot of just things you need to know, regarding law and regarding chemistry.”

Daniel Kalef, vice president of university partnership at Green Flower, said the company has been around for five years, but started the partnership with schools about a year and half ago.
