Oaksterdam University Offers NEW Half Day Business Course at 2016 CA Cannabis Business Expo

[youtube id=”0RRw81TKibI” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”yes” maxwidth=”800″]

Oaksterdam University is pleased to offer a very unique program in response to demand, and geared for current business owners and managers of dispensaries, and cultivation and manufacturing companies, as well as investors providing private equity and resources, and professional and business service providers.

This program, which is part of the California Cannabis Business Expo to be held March 3rd to 5th in San Francisco, differs from the college’s existing offerings on campus, online or on-the-road seminars. It is designed to meet the specific needs of cannabis business decision-makers and will focus on cannabis law, legal business structures, introduction to horticulture, and a growing equipment lab. All program participants will also have access to the day’s expo activities and networking with like-minded people.

Facilitated by Oaksterdam University’s Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones, this program includes four classes taught by two renowned professionals in the cannabis industry: Jeff Jones, a long-time cannabis advocate and cultivation educator in Oakland, and Robert Raich, a leading medical cannabis attorney who has been involved in medical cannabis legal issues for decades all the way to the Supreme Court.

“As more people enter the cannabis industry, it is so important to understand how to mitigate their legal, social and political risk,” said Oaksterdam University’s Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones. “That is the focus of this program and it ties in nicely with everything the California Cannabis Business Expo has to offer. Plus, those earning Oaksterdam certification for this course will be able to take any future elective or advanced classes at OU, as well as enjoy networking during the rest of the Expo.”

Existing prerequisite courses for Oaksterdam University’s advanced business and horticulture classes require a student to enroll in either a two-day seminar or a semester to understand a range of topics from the history and politics of cannabis to its science and how to deal with law enforcement.

“While the college’s basic courses are comprehensive for anyone, the focus normally pertains to individuals, patients, and caregivers. Tailoring the information for the business professional is what makes this prerequisite course special,” said Jones.

Registration is open, and the program will be held at the San Francisco Hilton Union Square on March 5 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, includes lunch and full access to the exhibit hall, which features a special interview with Ed Rosenthal.

About Oaksterdam University: Since 2007, when Oaksterdam University became the first cannabis college in the United States, it has been the forerunner in providing the highest quality training to people interested in a career in the cannabis industry and the first institution to address the growing needs of the marijuana movement, from patients to regulators. Such a focus has established Oaksterdam University as the only cannabis college with a comprehensive curriculum in cannabis horticulture, business and medical applications available today. In addition to training individuals wanting to get into the cannabis industry, OU trains regulators including legislative staff, state agencies, and government officials as well as state evaluators overseeing medical marijuana license applications. Oaksterdam University’s scope into research and development has expanded through partnerships with the Oregon Health Research Institute as well as with the University of West Indies. Our faculty is comprised of over 150 professionals, academics and entrepreneurs, and OU alumni – over 25,000 from over 30 countries – are the most active in the world.

Weed Documentary (2016) – High School: Marijuana in an American Public High School

[youtube id=”BApEKGUpcXs” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”yes” maxwidth=”800″]

Weed documentary 2016 – This marijuana documentary shows an inside look a high school weed culture. Marijuana use at this school in Portland Oregon is very high, pun intended. Smoking pot has become almost a norm at this high school, while Mooks, Dabs, and other drugs are becoming a real problem. The documentary shows how smoking weed can lead to problems for many young people and also tries to show the disconnect between students and teachers on the subject of drugs. The documentary is not trying to make a statement about marijuana or drugs in general; this is not anti-drug propaganda. The documentary is however intended to bring to light a growing problem and open a more in-depth discussion.

When I first started making this documentary film, I was smoking a lot of weed. I had always believed that marijuana was completely different from other drugs and would never be a huge problem for society. However, the more I investigated this topic, the more I began to realize that weed wasn’t all good. I was surprised upon returning to my old high school to find that xanax and other pills were becoming pretty popular. What’s more, no parents or teachers or anyone at the school had any idea that there was an issue. It was just a bunch of kids experimenting with something that many saw as not a “hard drug”. I don’t blame marijuana for causing a small xanax epidemic at this school, that would be absurd. But what I can tell you is that only one year ago, virtually no one did xanax and marijuana was the drug of choice. In 2015 a very high percentage of my class smoked weed, and smoked weed regularly. It seems like pot is still the drug of choice at this high school but it seems like things have just gotten so much worse in the last year. Also the whole “mooking” thing is pretty out of hand as well. I know it’s just weed and tobacco, but I guess when you hit it out of a huge bong several times a day it has some gnarly consequences. I know that in the last year Oregon has legalized marijuana and in the same year the drug problem has gotten worse at this school, but I really don’t know if you can connect the two. Kids were smoking just as much weed before legalization. Maybe it has something to do with the “it’s not cool anymore” affect as stated by lil droosie. I have always supported marijuana legalization. I think people should have the freedom to use cannabis for recreation. However, after making this documentary I feel less sure about legalization than ever. I know that legalizing could help with our prison overcrowding, cut power away from drug cartels, and is just generally the right thing to do. But it really does seem like it may lead to an inevitable increase in underage use. I don’t know and neither does anyone else. Since making this documentary I have started smoking a lot less weed myself and have noticed positive affects. Maybe I’m just getting old and more conservative , and less fun haha. Just know that before you comment that is documentary is anti-drugs or anti-weed, it has made by a liberal 19 year old weed-user who didn’t think weed was bad before he started investigating.
