Oaksterdam University to Host Classic Cannabis Seminar in D.C. June 27-28

Flurry of D.C. Marijuana Law Changes, Growing Demand, and Sales Restrictions Are Reasons to Educate Patients, Caregivers, Entrepreneurs

DC-pop-6-2-fix

Have you been able to keep up with the changing marijuana laws in D.C.? In a short amount of time, the District has seen a number of changes. Here’s a brief summary.

Medical cannabis became legal in Washington, D.C. in 2010, and the first dispensary opened in 2013. At the time, the law was very strict and there was a chronic shortage of medicine for many of the marijuana-using patients registered with the D.C. Department of Health. Last summer, the D.C. Council relaxed the rules for obtaining a doctor’s recommendation and the number of patients soared past the ability of the city’s three official growers to meet.

Earlier this year, the D.C. Council legalized adult use marijuana (Initiative 71). Now adults 21 and over may legally use marijuana, possess up to two ounces and grow up to six marijuana plants in their homes for personal use. Cannabis sales, however, are still illegal. There is a bill before the District Council that would regulate and tax marijuana sales, though no action has been taken yet.

Restricting legal sale of adult use marijuana is creating booming dealer transactions and won’t be ignored by the D.C. Council for long. And, despite the sales restrictions, even respectable entrepreneurs are finding ways to leverage the market. In a recent Capital News Service article, Alicia McElhaney described a new generation of entrepreneurs who want to help marijuana customers grow and consume marijuana.

Oaksterdam University is bringing its Basic Classic Cannabis Seminar to D.C. to help educate individuals—patients, caregivers, entrepreneurs, future employers/employees, etc—about the cannabis industry nationally and specific to D.C.
