Cannabis Course Coming To Alaska

Experts say Alaskans can prosper if weed becomes legal


by Mike Ford

The Alaska Cannabis Institute wants to educate Alaskans about the business of marijuana and make some good money while doing it.

For a pre-registration fee of $420 dollars they say they can help the average Alaskan figure out if being in the business of marijuana is for them.

Of course that would all be contingent on the legalization of the drug in the August 19Th primary.

Organizers of the coarse believe it is not if such legislation will pass but when. They say the marijuana issue will not be going away any time soon and Alaska should tax and regulate the substance now like Washington and Colorado.

"In order for the cannabis industry to work there needs to be a tracking system from seed to sale because they want to make sure the medicine is not getting into the hands of kids" said Cory Wray event manager.

I think this is a marvelous program and I'm wondering why Washington doesn't have one. Or, if there is a similar program in Washington, where can people go to get more information about it? Seems like a common sense educational response to the opportunities cannabis legalization provides for employment and starting business.

$420. I see what you did there. Marijuana business classes are the best idea since the legalization initiative. It would be great for AK commerce, and what better way to go into a new business than with an industry education? A wonderful idea, and while it's good to have a plan, it is probably a bit early. Though I hope that voters with reason and sense will appear in force on August 19th, cashing in on courses in May is somewhat preemptive.

$420 is highway robbery and discriminates against many who could not afford it!!!!!!! $4.20 would be more accessible and it would still carry the message.

after looking up your business on the Alaska Secretary of State web site I couldn't find it. Please post your Alaska business license. I feel this company may be a scam and I would like proof otherwise. Many people will be flooding to AK if the law passes. Alaskans beware.

I do consider all the ideas you've presented on your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are very brief for novices. May just you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post. fkfaaeeccfafeeee
