OAKSTERDAM UNIVERSITY EYES DC FOR CANNABIS CAMPUS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Cannabis Career Training Comes to the Nation’s Capital June 27-28

Oaksterdam University to Prepare Washingtonians to Work in the Legal Cannabis Industry

 

Oaksterdam-University-logoWASHINGTON, DC, April 8, 2015 — On June 27-28, 2015, Oaksterdam University – the nation’s only recognized cannabis college – will bring to Washington, DC, the city’s first certified career training program for candidates seeking to enter the legal cannabis industry. The two-day event, to be held at the Capital Hilton located at 1001 16th Street, NW, is sponsored by local cannabis entrepreneur Ben David Sheppard and his portfolio of cannabis companies, MD Canna-Care & Cultivation, House of Jane and Jane’s Brew Gourmet Coffees teas and other fine edibles.

The training will provide participants with the critical information they need to pursue a cannabis career, from opening a dispensary or delivery business, to structuring a legal cannabis entity, understanding their legal rights under the District’s and other states’ laws, bud tending, vending and more. The Washington, DC, certification program is a good testing ground for Oaksterdam as it eyes Washington, DC, as a potential headquarters for its planned East Coast campus.

When the District of Columbia approved Initiative 71 last November, it made possession of marijuana legal in the city. Officials estimate that the local marijuana economy could become $130 million annually. And, CannaInsider has estimated that states with legal cannabis laws will create over 200,000 new industry jobs in 2015 alone.

“The District of Columbia has positioned itself as a leader in the legal marijuana movement, and we are proud to bring our deep bench of industry knowledge and experience to help DC’s and other East Coast cannabis industry pioneers grow their careers and emerging businesses,” said Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University. “Congress may throw roadblocks in DC’s way, but legal cannabis, marijuana jobs and opportunities are here to stay.”

“As a business owner who calls Washington home and an owner of House of Jane, a cannabis-infused beverage company geared towards patients, I know how important it is to create an industry that is responsible in its approach and in its commitment to patients and consumers,” said Sheppard. “We’re dedicated to training a workforce that is committed to product quality, health and safety – and that’s why we’ve built a relationship with Oaksterdam University. We want to give Washington, DC, and every state the confidence to support medical marijuana and cannabis legalization.”

We all like to get high on quality cannabis products. If you are not smoking pot, you are probably consuming it as an edible. Every stoner or any regular cannabis user know their limit. Whether they are consuming it for recreational purposes or for its medicinal value. The main problem comes when one overdoses’ of cannabis. This may happen to new cannabis edibles consumers. For new users wanting a more regulated experience, powdered cannabis may be an answer.
