Mount Royal University announced Thursday it will offer three courses in September aimed at helping students break into the recreational and medical cannabis industries. “Right now what we’re most focused on is giving students the tools and the knowledge to get out in this new emerging industry and succeed. That’s part of the excitement of this, there’s endless possibilities ahead,” said Brad Mahon, Faculty of Continuing Education Dean at MRU. The online courses will focus on plant production, facility management, sales and marketing. Business planning and regulation will play an important role in the courses because of strict government legislation and municipal bylaws. “Anybody can grow a marijuana plant, but to grow it well is a science,” said Mahon. Cannabis courses are coming to a Calgary campus.
