Anne Arundel Community College
As the marijuana business becomes legal, colleges offering courses in the industry are following.
The latest addition to this type of marijuana college education is Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland. The college made a decision to offer a marijuana business class and interviewed the professor teaching the course. Shad Ewart stated that he felt “like we were doing a disservice to our students by not having a class like this.”
Students currently attending Ewart’s class called “Entrepreneurial Opportunities in Emerging Markets: Marijuana Legalization,” will be educated on dealing with the finer points of sales and helping states to legalize marijuana.The marijuana business course offers information on the history of marijuana, tax and economic impact of legalization, and the regulatory issues surrounding marijuana.
