Mike Whitty oaksterdam marijuana cannabisMany of you know Dr. Detroit, aka Professor Mike Whitty. He and his lovely wife Gail have been driving political change in Michigan for more years than Justin Bieber has been alive. Professor Whitty teaches in Michigan and in California, with a summer and winter job educating people about business and tossing in some marijuana facts along the way.

He instructs for Oaksterdam University, too, and the college is offering some special educational deals during the California Cannabis Business Expo in San Francisco next week.

Here is the flyer I received announcing the special deals:

OU is offering a very unique program, geared for

  • Business owners, managers and staff
  • Entrepreneurs starting a cannabis business
  • Investors providing private equity and resources
  • Professional service providers
  • Cultivators about to enter the legal market

This program, which is part of the California Cannabis Business Expo to be held March 3rd to 5th in San Francisco, differs from the college’s existing offerings on campus, online or on-the-road seminars. It is designed to meet the specific needs of cannabis business decision-makers and will focus on cannabis law, legal business structures, introduction to horticulture, and a growing equipment lab.  Anyone who simply wants to safely grow quality cannabis, and network with like-minded people in an expo environment, should look at this one-day package as a little bit of everything!

Those earning Oaksterdam certification for this course will be able to take any future elective or advanced classes at OU, as well as enjoy networking during the rest of the Expo.  This program includes four classes taught by two renowned professionals in the cannabis industry: Jeff Jones, a long-time cannabis advocate and cultivation educator, and Robert Raich, a leading medical cannabis attorney who has been involved in medical cannabis legal issues for decades all the way to the Supreme Court.

Registration is open, and the program will be held at the San Francisco Hilton Union Square on March 5 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, includes lunch and full access to the exhibit hall, which features a special interview with Ed Rosenthal.
