Colorado State Approval For Greenway University To Teach Medical Marijuana

The industry’s leading medical marijuana educational provider, Greenway University, has received full format state approval from the Colorado Department of Higher Education.

This marks yet another industry milestone by moving from probationary status to full status as a recognized Colorado vocational school and the University has also received authorization for teaching medical marijuana state approved courses. The authorization makes it the first and only such state approved and regulated medical marijuana courses in the United States.

“We are extremely thankful to the state of Colorado for allowing us to become a part of history for the entire medical marijuana industry. This monumental decision further validates our forward thinking messages of education, professionalism and industry leading programs,” Greenway University founder and CEO Gus Escamilla, said. “We feel incredibly blessed and thankful to the state of Colorado for providing us with this monumental decision and approving us for an additional 10 state approved and regulated medical marijuana education courses that range from Budtenderâ„¢, medicine making, tinctures, concentrates, continuing legal education to advanced cultivation courses that set the standard for a higher level of professional education for the entire medical marijuana industry.”

Escamilla added, “This marks yet another historic milestone for our industry. We recently announced our second campus development plans into the Arizona marketplace with passing of Proposition 203 with further expansion plans across the US with the continued legalization of the medical marijuana industry. We are exceptionally excited about the Arizona marketplace. Our first weekend course was such an incredible success with over 300 students in attendance that we immediately scheduled a second seminar for February 26th and 27th, 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona to meet the growing demand.”
