New Jersey CannaBusiness Association Executive Director Tara Sargente is launching a Cannabis 101 course at Atlantic Cape Community College as part of a collaborative agreement announced by both parties earlier this year.
The six week online course, which starts Oct. 11, will begin with the foundations of cannabis history and basic plant knowledge. Sargente, owner of legal edibles company Blazin’ Bakery, will discuss what’s going on with cannabis legalization, explore the supply chain’s see-to-sale process, and discuss the business challenges unique to the cannabis industry.
“Cannabis is the fastest growing industry in the country, with adult use sales in New Jersey projected to create 18,000 new jobs,” said Sargente in a statement. “We cannot ignore this massive new market. Those interested in getting involved in the field will need to be equipped with the right knowledge. This course is meant to provide that knowledge through an overview of the cannabis industry and the many opportunities it contains.”
In addition to the online classes, students can participate in six optional classroom hours with Sargente. Total cost for the course is $289. Those interested in participating can contact Atlantic Cape Program Navigator Michele Matulevich at 609-343-5655.
