It’s safe to say that Cannabis as an industry is very much evolving state to state and thankfully it’s headed in the right direction. Federal legalization is a different story altogether but that hasn’t stopped several institutions from creating the next generation of pioneers.
Here is a curated list of institutions and groups providing higher education throughout the US.
