Cannabis Career Training Comes to the Nations Capital June 27-28

WASHINGTON, DC (PRWEB) April 08, 2015

On June 27-28, 2015, Oaksterdam University – the nation’s only recognized cannabis college – will bring to Washington, DC, the city’s first certified career training program for candidates seeking to enter the legal cannabis industry. The two-day event, to be held at the Capital Hilton located at 1001 16th Street, NW, is sponsored by local cannabis entrepreneur Ben David Sheppard and his portfolio of cannabis companies, MD Canna-Care & Cultivation, House of Jane and Jane’s Brew Gourmet Coffees teas and other fine edibles.

The training will provide participants with the critical information they need to pursue a cannabis career, from opening a dispensary or delivery business, to structuring a legal cannabis entity, understanding their legal rights under the District’s and other states’ laws, bud tending, vending and more. The Washington, DC, certification program is a good testing ground for Oaksterdam as it eyes Washington, DC, as a potential headquarters for its planned East Coast campus.

When the District of Columbia approved Initiative 71 last November, it made possession of marijuana legal in the city. Officials estimate that the local marijuana economy could become $ 130 million annually. And, CannaInsider has estimated that states with legal cannabis laws will create over 200,000 new industry jobs in 2015 alone.

“The District of Columbia has positioned itself as a leader in the legal marijuana movement, and we are proud to bring our deep bench of industry knowledge and experience to help DC’s and other East Coast cannabis industry pioneers grow their careers and emerging businesses,” said Dale Sky Jones, Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University. “Congress may throw roadblocks in DC’s way, but legal cannabis, marijuana jobs and opportunities are here to stay.”

“As a business owner who calls Washington home and an owner of House of Jane, a cannabis-infused beverage company geared towards patients, I know how important it is to create an industry that is responsible in its approach and in its commitment to patients and consumers,” said Sheppard. “We’re dedicated to training a workforce that is committed to product quality, health and safety – and that’s why we’ve built a relationship with Oaksterdam University. We want to give Washington, DC, and every state the confidence to support medical marijuana and cannabis legalization.”

To register for the two-day training, please visit http://www.Oaksterdam.com/dcseminar. Space is limited and early bird registration rates end May 31.

If you are a member of the media and would like to obtain a press pass, schedule an interview with an executive or need additional information, contact Marichelli Hughes at 202.715.3906 or marichelli(dot)hughes(at)720strategies(dot)com.

Representative Cardenas Hosts Dialogue on Legalization of Marijuana at Paradise Valley Community College April 14


Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Paradise Valley Community College is hosting a series of informative and stimulating public policy discussions of interest to students and the general public. Hosted by District 19 Representative Mark A. Cardenas, the April 14 forum will focus on the controversial issue of legalizing marijuana in Arizona.

In January, Representative Cardenas introduced House Bill 2007, to decriminalize marijuana possession of up to one ounce for adults 21 and older. The legalization would have expanded the current medical marijuana dispensary process, and addressed the issue of growing plants for personal consumption.

The proposed Bill included a tax structure to be applied to marijuana sales, with the funds earmarked for education; substance abuse treatment programs and public education campaigns; and the general fund.

The Bill did not make it out of committee.

An Iraq War Army Veteran, Representative Cardenas served as a Sergeant in the Army Reserves and managed a multi-million dollar budget. As a legislator, supported ground-breaking legislation last year to expand AHCCCS coverage and increase funding for K-12.

As a commissioner on the City of Phoenix’s Estrella Village Planning Committee, he is responsible for reviewing new zoning areas and land use proposals. He is passionate about shaping the future vision and character of the community.

Sponsored by PVCC’s Student Life & Leadership, the Student Public Policy Forum is free and open to the public, and takes place at the college’s Union Hills campus, located at 18401 North 32nd St., just west of the SR 51 Union Hills exit. Parking is always free.

###

Founded in 1985, Paradise Valley Community College is one of the 10 regionally accredited Maricopa Community Colleges, offering transferable academic courses as well as job-specific occupational training. The Union Hills campus is located just west of the SR51 Union Hills exit, at 18401 N. 32nd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85032. PVCC at Black Mountain, serving the far north Valley, opened in August 2009. PVCC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association (NCA).

Medical and Recreational Marijuana Growing in the US Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld


New York, NY (PRWEB) April 09, 2015

The Medical and Recreational Marijuana Growing industry has flourished over the five years to 2015. For decades, all marijuana transactions in the United States were conducted under implicit or explicit prohibition. However, states have increasingly moved to legalize nonprofit marijuana for medical purposes, as well as to implement regulations for organizations that sell cannabis. “The growing acceptance of medical marijuana is providing growers and investors with unprecedented opportunities,” says IBISWorld Industry Analyst Dmitry Diment. “There has been no shortage of demand in recent years, as the industry has benefited from increased acceptance of the legitimacy of medical marijuana products.”

Recently, the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington has spurred additional demand for the industry. In 2014, the licensing of commercial recreational marijuana growers in these states contributed to industry revenue growth of 54.7%. In addition to the favorable regulatory environment in these states, medical marijuana growers have continued to benefit from the steadily aging population. Chronic illnesses have become more prevalent as the population continues to age, driving demand for medical marijuana. Overall, the industry is expected to experience annualized revenue growth of 30.2% to $ 1.9 billion in the five years to 2015, including growth of 25.1% during the current year.

According to Diment, however, “The industry will remain at risk until the federal government definitively changes its position on the legality of marijuana. Until then, a growing number of medical marijuana patients, as well as a burgeoning recreational cannabis legalization movement, will spur demand for the industry.” Rising demand is also forecast to widen profit margins, as is the success of the for-profit recreational marijuana business in Colorado and Washington. In particular, the next five years are expected to see the growth of large commercial cultivators, who will benefit from strong recreational demand across a number of states, including Alaska, Oregon and the District of Columbia.

National Expansion For Medical Marijuana Clinics Announced


Lafayette, CO and Norton Shores, MI (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Liberate Physician Management LLC and Liberate Physician Centers announced today the national expansion of its medical marijuana physician centers into all 23 states that allow the use of medical cannabis, and will elevate patient care through a licensure program that establishes the nation’s first uniform Standard of Care for medical marijuana therapy.

The company’s licensure program is designed to help doctors, entrepreneurs, health care providers and others enter the rapidly growing medical marijuana industry.

“The single commonality among all states with medical cannabis programs is the requirement of a physician certification allowing a patient to use medical marijuana,” says Daniel J. Reid, chief executive officer of Liberate. “Understandably, states want to ensure patients are under a doctor’s care, but the reality is that patients often are forced into the shadows to find a doctor willing to provide the required certification,” he says.

“Liberate’s licensure program gives physicians and entrepreneurs the ability to help patients have access to medical marijuana therapy, and does so by mainstreaming this treatment option for the millions of people suffering from serious illness and debilitating medical conditions,” he says.

Reid is a leading patient advocate and business owner in the medical marijuana industry. He co-founded the first medical cannabis business in Illinois, established a national patient advocacy organization, and opened physician centers in Michigan and Illinois leading into the national expansion of Liberate.

“The medical marijuana industry is a three-legged stool,” Reid says. “Physician certification is the primary leg, since this is required in every state with a medical marijuana program. Producers of medical marijuana are another leg, and dispensaries are the third leg. The system mirrors traditional medicine with physician certification for medical marijuana the equivalent of a prescription, producers and cultivators acting as pharmaceutical companies, and dispensaries serving as pharmacies. There are nuances from state to state, but conceptually this is how state programs work.”

Liberate licensees will operate under the brand Liberate Physician Centers.

“We’ve been testing, holding focus groups and refining the licensure concept over the past six months with physicians and business people that might have a logical interest in owning and operating a Liberate Center,” Reid said in making the announcement. “In fact, we already have received commitments for licensures in three states and are in active discussions in three other states based on our outreach to test and refine the licensure concept,” he said.

“We have worked with thousands of patients afflicted with medical conditions approved under state law as qualified for medical marijuana therapy, and have certified patients for the use of medical cannabis,” Reid says.

Essentially, Liberate’s licensures provide independent owner/operators a full range of services and training in how to operate a medical marijuana physician center under the Liberate Physician Centers brand. Among licensed services are ongoing training, regulatory guidance, business and back-room operations, marketing support and training, medical review, provision of required patient forms and other necessary documentation, and a full suite of services designed to promote the success of each licensed location.

“Liberate offers expertise to physicians and entrepreneurs,” Reid says. “Our licensure program provides a gateway for people wanting to own a business in the medical marijuana industry. Our knowledge, experience and processes give much needed protection to physicians that might otherwise feel reticent about certifying patients because of restrictions – both real and perceived – imposed by hospitals, peers and others.”

All Liberate facilities will operate under Liberate’s ‘Standard of Care’ that details how patients will be treated and certified. Liberate’s Standard is the nation’s first relative to medical marijuana, and addresses the emergence of so-called ‘pot docs’ in some states, whereby minimal medical review standards are often ignored.

“It’s time to bring the medical marijuana certification process into the open, and give people with debilitating medical conditions and approved chronic illness a reliable, professional place to turn,” Reid says.

“The barriers to entry into the medical cannabis industry have been prohibitive and expensive,” Reid says. “Our licensure program allows people wanting to become business owners ease-of-access to entry at a price that is affordable. Our goal is to expand patient access to medical marijuana therapy, and do so in a manner that conforms to the same medical standards that exist in the practice of traditional medicine.”

Licenses to operate a Liberate Physician Center are being offered in all states that currently allow for medical marijuana, as well as states that are expected to approve medical marijuana in the next two years.

“The traditional medical community has been resistant to embracing medical cannabis for many reasons, mostly because of legalities and fears that don’t put patients at the forefront,” Reid says.

Liberate’s management team includes medical professionals and senior executives with proven expertise in medicine, marketing, public affairs, technology, hospital and physician-group operations, franchising, pharmacy, medical training and education, medical marijuana, management consulting and other disciplines.

In addition to Reid, among those on Liberate’s management team are Dr. Marla Gendelman, Jeff Colvin, Dr. Mayur Shah, Gary Judd, Mark Turgeon and Bill Sheerin.

Gendelman is a board certified anesthesiologist and serves as Liberate’s Chief Medical Officer. Colvin is Chief Executive Officer at Acustream, a Colorado-based company that works with hospitals and physician groups in optimizing revenue streams through technology applications. Previously, he was co-president of the IT consulting firm Rapidgm, acquired by Fujitsu in 2006.

Dr. Mayur Shah is Chief Executive Officer of MK Education, a Chicago-based firm that trains and certifies medical staff and technicians. He also owns and operates Broadway Avenue Pharmacies in Chicago and has two decades of experience in business management, pharmacy, healthcare, healthcare education, emergency care, hospital pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences. Recently, he was among the recipients of a medical marijuana dispensary license issued by the State of Illinois after a highly-competitive application and review process.

Judd is based in Dallas and was the architect of the national expansion of Fox & Hound, a bar and grill company with over 90 locations. Turgeon is based in San Francisco and is a leading business owner and consultant in technology businesses over the past 30 years. Sheerin purchased and consolidated hotels, then converted them into a single national brand. He is based in Colorado.

“Anyone interested in owning a medical marijuana business should get in touch with our company,” Reid says.
