Post-secondary cannabis programming helps normalize industry, provides talent pipeline

July 30, 2019

Since cannabis was legalized in Canada last year, courses dedicated to the plant have emerged at college and university campuses across the country, reports the Toronto Star. According to the Cannabis Council of Canada, at least 12 post-secondary schools have added cannabis-related programs that cover everything from production research and training to marijuana law and business. The Star notes that the knowledge and skills developed in post-secondary labs and classrooms will be critical to a healthy and growing industry, in addition to the legitimizing effect that partnerships with post-secondary offer the industry as a whole.
