Pot Class: B.C. University to Offer Course on Growing and Selling Cannabis

With only 25 licensed distributors in Canada, teacher Tegan Adams says education a must for industry

If you were ever thinking about growing and selling marijuana, Kwantlen Polytechnic University in British Columbia may have the course for you.

This fall, the university will offer a course called Introduction to Professional Management of Marijuana for Medical Purposes in Canada, believed to be the first of its kind, which will teach students how to operate a marijuana business under new government regulations.

The 14-week online course will be taught by Tegan Adams, who works as a business development manager at Experchem Laboratories Inc. The company does cannabis testing and helps producers with their submissions to Health Canada.

“You have a lot of people that are really good at growing marijuana who are used to black market and a lot of people that are investing in the marijuana industry are coming from different industries and there is a gap in the middle where Health Canada is regulating their production and neither of those two groups knows how to deal with it,” Adams told Rick Cluff on CBC Radio’s The Early Edition.
