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.
