If you’d like to learn the ins and outs of marijuana, from plant cultivation to marketing to sales, college in Canada is the place for you.
Kwantlen Polytechnic University, a Canadian university in British Columbia that sounds super respectable, will begin offering a 14-week class on the growing pot industry this fall. The class will focus on all aspects of marijuana, and could help you become the most profitable drug-dealer in your neighborhood. Don’t worry — if you aren’t a fan of Canada, you can take the class online.
The 14-week course – Introduction to Professional Management of Medical Marijuana for Medical Purposes – will be delivered online. It consists of two separate classes – one focused on growing the product, while the other is about moving and selling the drug.
Plant Production & Facility Management lectures will focus on delivering a high-quality product to the market by properly teacingits students about irrigation options and techniques, different growing methods, crop cycles, as well as drying and storing the herb. The class will also focus on the legalities and regulations and the possibility of becoming a licensed producer under Canadian law.
Marketing, Sales & Drug Development lectures will offer their students a chance to capitalize on the already-finished product by focusing on branding strategies and customer loyalty. It will also provide insights into the role medical professionals play in treating conditions with cannabis in Canada.
The “course is designed to provide an overview of the successes and continual challenges within the rapidly expanding medical marijuana market., making it open to anyone, anytime. Learn from professionals with experience in the industry including horticulturalists, lawyers and marketing specialists,” the online description of the course reads.
The course is being taught by Tegan Adams, a business development manager at Experchem Laboratories Inc., a firm that does marijuana testing for producers and helps them submit results to Health Canada.
I would make some snide remark about how dumb this is, but I recently finished an $1,800 course on dinosaurs, so I’m not really in a position to judge. (Though, if you would like to join me in the comment section, we can discuss how Theropoda synapomorphies can still be found in the common bird.)
Pot is a growing industry, and will most likely be legal in all 50 states before we turn 40. If you’d like to be a pot-entrepreneur, it would be smart to learn the business now so you can have a leg up on that kid from high school who failed out of college spring semester freshman year and starting selling pot to everyone in your hometown..
