Atlantic Cape Community College has introduced a class to its curriculum called "Cannabis 101: Essential Knowledge for a Growing Industry". It was started as a non-credit class, designed to gauge the interest of students and the community; this semester, thirteen people signed up.

While the recreational legalization movement in NJ has quieted down, the medicinal industry is growing, and this class is aiming to guide people through the steps to opening their own facilities and navigating the legalities.

ACCC joins Stockton University as local schools that offer marijuana-related classes. Last year, Stockton introduced a minor in cannabis studies.

All jokes about how I should get retroactive credit for "studying marijuana in college", this is actually a pretty good course to take. If you want to open any other business, it would help to have a Business Degree. Having to deal with all the red tape of any startup, and then working around the fact that this business is just becoming legal would add a lot of extra paperwork and permits and stuff, so studying up in college would be a great plan.
