It’s High Time A NY College Offered A Degree In Cannabis
There are some that believe I majored in partying in college....my parents included. Actually, I majored in Radio/TV/Film, but I minored in Whiskey & Weed.
Well, now at Fulton-Montgomery Community College in Johnstown, New York you can actually major in Cannabis. It's a good thing because New York is on the verge of a huge cannabis industry explosion. Everything from growing farms to distribution to dispensaries will be expanding all over the state. It's predicted to be a multi-billion dollar industry in the Empire State in the next few years.
Fulton-Montgomery Community College will be offering two certificate programs this fall. Cultivation Technician and Cannabis Laboratory Technician will be on the curriculum in this falls 2021 session.
Cultivation Technology Certificate will be kind of an agricultural certificate with training on growing, watering, potting, growing different strains through cross-breading, and movement of plant materials.
The Cannabis Laboratory Technician Certificated will focus on manufacturing and production of cannabis products like edibles, vapes, topical products, tincture, and other delivery methods.
In addition to FMCC, SUNY Morrisville is also offering a cannabis certificate program. Their program is geared more toward the industrial side of hemp and cannabis.
In the next 18 months when marijuana dispensaries start opening up all over New York, the need for skilled and trained cannabis workers will be greater than ever. Maybe this is an opportunity to take a different career path for someone.
