Cannabis is an industry that shows robust promise in the current job market.  It is estimated that job openings in the cannabis industry have grown over 3,000 percent since 2005. Cannabis-related business ownership has also shown massive growth over the last few years.

Eighteen states plus Washington D.C. have medical cannabis laws and two states have legalized the recreational use of cannabis.  Eight additional states have medical laws pending.  During a conference call with state governors on August 29th, Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the US Department of Justice would allow the marijuana legalization laws in Colorado and Washington to go into effect.    This has launched a nationwide conversation about dismantling cannabis prohibition as many marijuana-friendly municipalities, counties and states are now generating enormous amounts of revenue from taxes and business licensing fees.

Cannabis Career Institute To Conduct Seminar In Philadelphia To Promote Jobs and Business Opportunities For The Growing Industry

Philadelphia, PA and Burbank, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

This Sunday, January 25, at the Hampton Inn – Philadelphia International Airport, 8600 Bartram, Philadelphia, PA, 19153, DOUG PORTER, the Cannabis Career Institute expert in Bud-Tending, Dispensary Management, Delivery Service and Security, will conduct an all day seminar teaching budding cannabis entrepreneurs how to get started in the evolving industry.

CCI offers state-specific training courses that address a range of topics from legal requirements and regulations to basic grow techniques.

Last Fall,Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter signed an ordinance decriminalizing marijuana in the City of Brotherly Love, making it the largest U.S. city to have done so. However, the politicians at the state level have not so been progressive in their support of legalizing cannabis. Fortunately, that could all change soon as newly elected Governor, Tom Wolf, has displayed strong support for law reform. Lively debate is anticipated regarding emerging cannabis developments of the state.

“CCI Seminar interest from cannabis-minded businessmen and women all over the country has been tremendous,” said Porter. “As the cannabis legalization movement continues to envelope the nation, more and more people are seeing the exciting and potentially lucrative business opportunities available. Helping people understand the industry and preparing them to pursue their goals is what we do.”
