Media Report: Higher Ed: UC Riverside helping students kickstart careers in cannabis

Legal cannabis in California is a multi-billion dollar industry, and many Californians are trying to figure out how to get a piece of the action.

But specific hurdles and a lack of industry knowledge have made it challenging for prospective employees and entrepreneurs to break in and get their careers started.

That’s why the University of California, Riverside has partnered with a prominent online cannabis education company to fill the gap in institutional know-how and help Californians, particularly many in the Inland Empire, learn more about the industry and its pitfalls and better their chances of being hired on with an existing company, or even grow one from the ground up.

The university’s extension program has been working with a company called Green Flower, which has set up a curriculum, assembled a roster of instructors and worked to establish a hiring portal for those looking to make a career out of cannabis.
