Marijuana Seminar At Bally’s In Atlantic City To Be Held By California-based University | Nj.com

“Growing marijuana offers a new economy and it provides training for the workers of tomorrow,” said Jones. “The laws are changing so fast that even if jobs aren’t available today there’s going to be ones opening so having that training is an advantage.” Medical marijuana currently generates an estimated $2 billion in annual sales nationwide and is expected to quadruple in the next five years. Currently, 23 states have legalized the medical use of marijuana. The training offered through the seminar will provide education to those seeking jobs in this growing industry. The production of medical marijuana will not only create new jobs, but will also produce a new and localized industry for farmers, Jones said. “For the first time in a long time, we have the opportunity to create American jobs on American land,” said Jones. “New Jersey in particular has a lot of farmland and has a large opportunity to create cash crops.” The seminar will give insight into the cannabis movement and will provide guests with the practical knowledge of cannabis production from seed to harvest. This training will give students the ability to produce legal medicinal-quality marijuana. Although the event will be teaching farmers proper growing techniques, it will also allow non-growers to explore and receive training for other careers within the cannabis industry. “There are opportunities for people to get involved in the industry without ever having to touch the plants,” said Jones.
