The first school in Nevada devoted to teaching people how to operate a successful medical marijuana dispensary has opened.
The Cannabis Career Institute launched its Budtender School with a workshop for about 40 students on Saturday in Henderson.
Institute founder Robert Calkin says his school educates would-be entrepreneurs on all aspects of the medical marijuana business, including how to grow marijuana legally and bake it into brownies, cookies and cakes.
The school’s opening comes as Nevada lawmakers consider a bill that would provide a way for patients to finally get the drug 13 years after Nevada voters approved use of medical marijuana.
The measure cleared its first hurdle Thursday as the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved it. The bill calls for the establishment and regulation of pot dispensaries.
