In November, voters went to the polls and passed a proposition to allow medical marijuana in Arizona.
Later this year, the drug will be legally sold for medicinal use.
There are a lot of rules when it comes to dispensaries and hydro-shops, including where they can be built and how many permits will be granted.
As the first state approved and regulated medical marijuana industry education provider, Greenway University will hold seminars during a two day event. Topics include political issues, legal procedures, edibles, nutrition, growing and cultivation. Attendees can even learn how to become "budtenders."
"We aim to not only educate on the laws and how they work, but also on how to go about opening a dispensary, techniques and information on cultivation, in addition to holding seminars by industry experts throughout the Valley and the nation," said Founder and CEO of Greenway University Gus Escamilla. "This is going to be a thriving industry which can really boost the local economy, but only if it's done right. We hope to drive the message of how important it is to have education before implementation."
There will also be video presentations, product testing and business management education.
