University Introduces Cannabis Compliance Program
The University of New Mexico has added a new program focused on cannabis compliance and risk management. According to the Albuquerque Journal, this six-month program is in partnership with California-based cannabis education platform Green Flower.
The program, which is being rolled out through UNM Continuing Education, began in November and spans six months.
The program — which provides an overview of federal and state cannabis regulations, track-and-trace systems and navigating changing regulatory requirements — is entirely online.
Max Simon, the CEO of Green Flower, said the program offering for cannabis compliance and risk management might be the most important one the company has offered to date.
“There’s often a dirty secret in the cannabis industry that people think they’re in the cannabis business,” Simon told the Journal, “but they’re actually in the compliance business because the compliance requirements to operate a legal cannabis business are very heavy handed.”
