Oaksterdam University to Prepare Washingtonians to Work in the Legal Cannabis Industry During Career Training Event

Oaksterdam University – the nation’s only recognized cannabis college – will bring to Washington, DC, the city’s first certified cannabis career training program for candidates seeking to enter the legal cannabis industry. The two-day event, which is sponsored by local cannabis Maryland entrepreneur Ben-David Sheppard, will be held on June 27-28, 2015 at the Capital Hilton located at 1001 16th Street, NW. The event is geared towards providing cannabis entrepreneurs, enthusiasts and advocates with hands-on training, education and career skills in how to be successful in one of the fastest growing emerging markets in the nation’s capital.
