US (NY): Columbia-Greene Community College to offer students outlook in the cannabis industry

As statewide marijuana legalization has started to open up opportunities for New Yorkers seeking to work in the cannabis industry, colleges and universities across the state are now offering cannabis-related courses to prepare students for careers.

Columbia-Greene Community College in Hudson, New York, is one such college. Maya Greene is the cannabis program coordinator at Columbia-Greene, and she stresses that the importance of the program lies in getting people ready to work in the industry.

“Our goal is to try to get the students graduated quickly, employable as soon as possible,” Greene said.

Columbia-Greene started organizing online cannabis coursework during its fall 2022 semester for less than 20 students, beginning with a retail and sales micro-credential. More recently, it began to offer another micro-credential: cultivation and processing, Greene said.
