“Higher” Education Found At Medical Marijuana School

I just love living in California, where with a doctor’s note for anything ranging from insomnia to cancer, you theoretically could be peacefully stoned all the time. As if colleges weren’t pot-friendly enough, now there’s a new option for “higher” learning in Detroit, which is taking steps to revive their sad economy with the new Med Grow Cannabis College. Acting as a trade school for medical marijuana caregivers, 24-year-old founder Nick Tennant modeled the college after California’s Oaksterdam University, which was the country’s first cannabis college when it opened in 2007. Besides Michigan, 12 other states have legalized medical marijuana, including Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, and Maine. The five-week Med Grow curriculum costs $475 and covers cultivation and breeding, cooking tips and recipes, and how to start a care-giving business. Oh, and there’s Cannabis History 101. Michigan care-givers are only allowed a maximum of five patients, unlike California dispensaries which can provide hundreds of patients with edibles, potent strains, oils, and extracts. Which is why graduates of Oaksterdam have more options and can become lobbyists or dispensary managers as well as care-givers. So if you’re unemployed and want to go where the money is, perhaps patting on the patchouli and planting some seeds might be the way to go? [ABC News]
