Cleveland Cannabis College Expanding Curriculum
“The school, which opened in January 2017, will soon offer three majors”
The irony here is that graduates of this school will probably have decent job prospects.

Cleveland Cannabis College curriculum expanding this fall
A year shy of Ohio’s medical marijuana program becoming operational, Cleveland Cannabis College is expanding it’s curriculum in the hopes of helping to fill the thousands of jobs that could be created with the budding industry.
Cleveland Cannabis College staff tout the program as the only full-time medical marijuana education of its kind in the country.
The school, which opened in January 2017, will soon offer three majors including horticulture, business and medical applications of cannabis.
They’re hoping to prepare Ohioans for the estimated 2,000 jobs that will have to deal specifically with dispensary, processing, testing and cultivation roles.
“And that’s a conservative estimate, we expect thousands of other ancillary jobs as well,” explained Richard Pine, Dean of Recruitment and Public Relations for the Cleveland Cannabis College. “I’m already getting calls asking if we’ll have employees.”
The CCC is not accredited by the Ohio Board of Colleges and School. Jacob Wagner, Dean of Instruction and Student Services at the Cleveland Cannabis College, says that’s because they don’t fit in a category.
“At least not yet,” Wagner explained, “We hope to have whatever accreditations that they ultimately decide we need as soon as possible.”
