Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Pennsylvania has long been one of the toughest states on Medical Marijuana and with the volatility of the political realm, medical marijuana has become the center focus for many groups, political agendas, activists, petition movements within the state of Pennsylvania.
As other states, like Colorado and Washington, decriminalize medical marijuana or recreational use cannabis, focus on budget issues and realization of expenses caused by criminalizing marijuana has given many politicians a larger platform to advocate with.
The recent submissions of legislation regarding medical usage of cannabis appears to have a decent chance of making a much needed change to current laws. Should the recent Senate Bill pass, medical marijuana will become a viable option for Pennsylvania entrepreneurs. When that happens, businesses will need to have the right professional training in the cannabis industry in order to compete with Corporations that might take over.
Recent medical and scientific studies, specifically regarding Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis, have shown the definite benefits of medical marijuana usage for patients who suffer on a daily basis.
Colorado has seen a $1.3 million to $3 million dollar tax benefit - in only one month and Washington has reported similar results. This means jobs have been created, businesses established and patients have had access to medical marijuana that was previously denied to them.
Following on the heels of those states, Pennsylvania politicians and PA political candidates have spoken vociferously and have begun the process to make medical marijuana legal.
Cannabis Career Institute arrives in Philadelphia on March 2nd, 2014 to teach business aspects of the medical marijuana industry to entrepreneurs wanting to capitalize on the potential $600 Billion dollar industry. Far from being a "stoners" perspective, CCI class teaches students industry standards, legal regulations based on each individual state and provides a structured learning environment for those students who are serious about the industry and wish to prepare for a legitimate, successful business when the medical marijuana laws change in Pennsylvania. The class also discusses other opportunities available within other states, which will allow students to understand just how large the professional side of the cannabis industry is.
John Veit, well known as a Marijuana Journalist and High Times Reporter, will be the Speaker and Host for this Philadelphia, PA Business Training Class and as a special guest. Veit is originally from Philadelphia and is a welcome part of the CCI Faculty.
