Cannabis Career Institute arrives in Las Vegas December 14 as part of a nation-wide tour to promote jobs and business opportunities in the growing cannabis industry.

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

On Saturday, December 14th, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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. Medical marijuana dispensary managers, lawyers, doctors and other specialists will be presenting their knowledge and expertise and be available for interviews.

Registration information can be found at http://www.cannabiscareerinstitute.com

As seen on NBC, FOX 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 2014 schedule:

Piscataway, NJ – January 11

Detroit — January 18

Cincinnati – January 19

Chicago — January 25

Los Angeles — February 8

Las Vegas — February 15

Sacramento – February22

Warwick, RI — March 1

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.

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.
