US: As interest grows in cannabis industry, so do education opportunities

Since Colorado legalized recreational marijuana in 2012 and with talks of federal legalization, the cannabis industry is becoming increasingly competitive. Now, there are educational opportunities for it.  

A new cannabis education program at the University of Denver’s University College is hoping to develop the industry’s workforce in a legitimate way.  

The program, led by Green Flower, has different tracks: The Business of Cannabis, Health care and Medicine, Agriculture and Horticulture, and the newest program, Cannabis Compliance and Risk Management.

Green Flower said those are the areas of the industry where skilled workers are most in demand, and getting potential employees’ credibility will help them stand out.
