New Jersey Non-Profit Provides Cannabis Job Training for Disenfranchised Communities

NEW JERSEY – A new program in New Jersey will provide entrepreneurial and employment opportunities in the cannabis industry for those in disenfranchised communities in the area.

According to the New Jersey Globe, the Minority Cannabis Academy was created by cannabis entrepreneurs Brendon Robinson and Stanley Okoro with the hopes of educating the community and diversifying the local community.

The program, which is receiving funding from the Harmony Dispensary, will provide cannabis education and workforce development aimed at those who are interested in working in a dispensary or in cultivation.

The Minority Cannabis Academy’s inaugural class includes 25 students from Jersey City, Newark, and Irvington and is set to commence in June.
