Ganjapreneur Discusses Pacific College and Oaksterdam’s New Medical Cannabis Certificate Program

By Pacific College - February 10, 2020

Ganjapreneur, a resource for cannabis professionals, recently interviewed Dale Sky Jones, president and CEO of the cannabis education institution Oaksterdam University, and Malcolm Youngren, COO of Pacific College, about the new collaboration between the two schools: the Medical Cannabis Certificate Program.

Jones discusses Oaksterdam’s long, difficult path, including a federal raid in 2012 that nearly destroyed the institution, while Youngren talks about the inception of the certificate program–the first of its kind in the US.
