The mouldsmay be made cold by placing them on the ice for tvk^o or threeminutes, previous to using them. The subject of the best form for suppositories having beenreferred to me, I have made some experiments in relation thereto.It occurred to me that an improvement might be made on theordinary form^ of suppositories, (a simple cone,) by having themso shaped as to fit an instrument for inserting them.

Cannabis Career Institute comes to South Florida to promote jobs and business opportunities in the growing cannabis industry

Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

The first CCI seminar in Florida has forced CCI organizers to expand the classroom facility as Floridians embrace the landmark Supreme Court ruling. As cannabis opportunities increase for individuals and small businesses, CCI plans to schedule more training seminars and events throughout Florida.

Robert Calkin, President and Founder of the Cannabis Career Institute, along with cultivation experts Jason “The Bud Whisperer” Scoby and Gary Maciel, will be in Miami this weekend to conduct a one day workshop about jobs and investment opportunities in the exploding cannabis industry.

On Saturday, February 1, at the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel, 3900 North West 21st Street in Miami (33142), budding cannabis entrepreneurs are invited to attend a day-long Cannabis Career Institute seminar covering every sector of this evolving industry. Since 2009, CCI has helped hundreds of people start businesses and find jobs growing, selling, manufacturing and servicing the marijuana industry. A variety of marijuana specialists will be presenting their knowledge and expertise and be available for interviews.

“CCI Seminar interest from cannabis-minded businessmen and women all over the country has been tremendous,” said Calkin. “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.”

Registration information can be found at

As seen on NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS among others, the Cannabis Career Institute (CCI) of North Hollywood, California will continue on its nationwide tour with future stops per the following schedule:

Miami – February 1

Los Angeles — February 8

New Hampshire – February 8

Las Vegas — February 15

Philadelphia – February 16

Sacramento – February22

Buffalo – February 22

New York – February 23

Warwick, RI — March 1

Boston — March 2

Piscataway, NJ – April 5&6

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.

“There is no other industry on the planet right now that is growing as rapidly as the cannabis business,” said Gary Lane, CCI’s Sales and Marketing Director. “If someone is looking for a career in marijuana or wants to learn how the industry works, the one day CCI workshop is an excellent primer. Not only does one receive valuable instruction and information but what also usually happens is a “class-bonding” dynamic. More often than not, students of each of the classes form their networking and support group that turns into a valuable and life-long resource.”

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.

Since 2009 CCI has specialized in the business of cannabis, teaching would-be entrepreneurs how to navigate the often-murky waters of starting up a cannabis business. CCI presents students with an objective expanse of options with step-by-step instruction on the process of starting a business. Delivery, Dispensary Management, Law, Compliance, Marketing and Advertising, Cultivation, Extracts and Cooking are all discussed in detail, providing students with many choices to fit their career goals and lifestyle.
