As More States Legalize Marijuana, “Cannabis College” Aims to Educate Students

If you walked into a seminar hall and were met with visions of tie-dyed t-shirts advertising High Times and marijuana-leaf tie clips as far as the eye could see, you may think you had stumbled onto the set of the classic movie Dazed and Confused. In actuality, you may have been in Washington, D.C. for a presentation by Oaksterdam University – the self-described “Cannabis College” – where more than 100 students recently took part in a 10-session seminar focusing on education in regions with recently loosened marijuana laws.

If you walked into a seminar hall and were met with visions of tie-dyed t-shirts advertising High Times and marijuana-leaf tie clips as far as the eye could see, you may think you had stumbled onto the set of the classic movie Dazed and Confused. In actuality, you may have been in Washington, D.C. for a presentation by Oaksterdam University – the self-described “Cannabis College” – where more than 100 students recently took part in a 10-session seminar focusing on education in regions with recently loosened marijuana laws.

With nearly two dozen states having already legalized marijuana, Oaksterdam officials are trying to educate marijuana users, growers and purveyors. “It’s really important that you spread education because there’s way too much that people don’t realize,” said Oaksterdam provost and dean of faculty Aseem Sappal. “You’re going to continue to pass laws, and all of a sudden you’re going to start a dispensary, which is great. But who’s going to teach you how to open that dispensary? Who’s going to teach you how to cultivate?”

Since its founding in 2007 as a mix of trade school and advocacy group, Oaksterdam University has been thriving as students are eager to pay $800 to attend these weekend sessions. Seminars are so popular that they sell out two months in advance; fourteen-week semesters at Oaksterdam’s flagship campus in Oakland, Calif. are booked six months ahead of time. Plans to potentially expand by opening campuses in New York, Los Angeles and Colorado have already been discussed. Sappal argued that “it’s just a matter of time before the entire nation legalizes.”

What are your thoughts on Oaksterdam University, aka Cannabis College? Would you attend one of the school’s in-demand seminars or do you think the administration is just blowing smoke?

How sad that scholarships.com fell prey to the financial gains from targeting our future generation for marijuana. This generation is all about instant gratification without regard to long term consequences. Growing up in the 70's I witnessed many intelligent people turning on to marijuana and losing their drives to succeed. My husband's partner has two children who both ruined themselves through marijuana use. One luckily just went through rehab and hopes to stay clean. The other, a daily pot user, has no ambition, dropped out of community college, and often slacks off at work in his father's office - the only place he can work because he only wants to get high. I have no problem with medicinal usage of marijuana, but I see how frequent recreational use is destroying people's futures and enticing them to settle for mediocrity as long as they can still get high. In many cases, marijuana usage becomes a way of life. Profitability doesn't justify the harm it creates.

Main point I wanna add being I'm not in a legal place & am not fully educated & there's plenty of other people to put my thoughts (God given will always be better than man-made but that's not always the same thing gotten but Gov. doesn't allow natural) out there: people are addicts by nature...they don't like change especially if its something that makes them feel better (which comes in a different package for everyone....everything from the hard core drugs down to food & friendship) there's nothing that isn't addictive to someone in some manner & we all have our weaknesses & it is each of our responsibilities to realize that & the details thereof b/c we are none exempt just in a different form & we should all do our best to @least know whats going on whether it be for our own or someone elses there's nothing we can do on any end for anyone & its going to be the case either way & not only from a financial & democratic view but even that of safety we need to be educated!

Regardless of the subject it does not matter with scholarship.com and I do not have to respond to a outlandish topic.... I have applied to many scholarship forums, and never never ever selected, there are certain selections made, and I'm by far the legal dummy...

Sarah G  on  7/6/2015 3:36:01 PM commented:

If you look into the history of marijuana you will see that many of our presidents smoked. Cause it was legal once. It became illegal when rich white women were found hanging out in the black jazz areas smoking it. This was back when racism was a huge thing. It is a seed you plant and it grows just as any herb does. Indians have been using it for generations and have less health issues as we do. I think it shouldn't be an issue. The medications pfizer makes are not natural but we go to the doctor and prescribed them every day. With all of the side effects that comes from them meds it is easier to just deal with your illness. I am bipolar, manic depressive, have anxiety and ocd and will not take there meds for the side effects mess me up more than just trying to cope on my own. I use all natural remedies instead. So if your gonna judge in a bad light learn about all of the history first before passing your judgement. People have been cured from cancer by using the oils from marijuana.

Al M  on  7/5/2015 11:18:15 PM commented:

Education around marijuana is critical. Alcohol and nicotine, two legal substances in the US, are responsible for many social problems and addiction. While the right to self-determination around marijuana use is great, individuals and us as a society must be educated on the benefits but also the risks and pitfalls of marijuana use in its various forms, as well as the benefits and risks to seeking employment in the field.

Scott H  on  7/4/2015 11:22:03 AM commented:

Wow, The level of grammar mistakes. Good lord people just because you smoke pot doesn't mean grammar doesn't exist. See this is the exact reason these "evil politicians" are fighting legalization because of half wits like some those people posting here.Think before you type do you think when you type without the use of any intelligence it looks good on the movement? And! If your so PRO legalization then do something about it in-other-words Fight for legalization where it counts at the polls and with the activist politicians who are PRO MMJ. Now that, that rant is over. Ive attended a few of these classes and i am also a MMJ patient who deals with close minded ppl daily. Not all MJ users are doped out idiots for Christ sake Bill Gates uses it. The classes are well Formatted and very informative and the staff is excellent very knowledgeable and friendly. Would highly suggest to anyone asking.

Kevin D.  on  7/3/2015 10:55:11 PM commented:

Legalizing Pot will just make it more available to high school students, like my son, who became addicted to this drug. Yes, he did become addicted! Most Pot sold today is not natural and mixed with synthetics. Whether it was physical or mentally addicted I don't know but in doesn't matter. It ruined his academics, his athletic career and his friendships. All he was concerned about was getting high and then started going out in the middle of the night to sell it. We eventually had to send him away to a Wilderness Therapy program and boarding school. The psychiatrist who did a full psychological test of my son at Wilderness said he had done many tests of teenagers who had a cannabis habit and found that their memory had degenerated from this use. He also scored lower on his IQ test than when he was in elementary school. I am only in favor of Pot for pain relief of life threatening diseases where it doesn't matter whether the person becomes addicted.

Ilse C.  on  7/2/2015 9:49:12 PM commented:

I find this very interesting and pretty great as well! Although many people are against the use of marijuana, it could just possibly be that they are not well informed about marijuana in general. Others simply refuse to hear anything related to the subject. But for those who do support it and do smoke marijuana, this is a great start for them to prosper, grow, and be successful in what they do.

It is essential that we as a nation is taught how to enjoy our new and up coming freedom. It's not just about education, it's democracy at its finest.

Danielle B.  on  7/2/2015 10:28:09 AM commented:

That is absolutely amazing to hear! Yes it is something that isn't fully accepted but to some this is medicine and it's time people start learning the TRUTH. The only way of it being acceptable and legal is if it's taught in a class room. Please continue this in other colleges! For some math, English, the ol plain Jane boring subjects don't always interest students. Different topics like this that aren't always talked catches attentions.

Marie H.  on  7/2/2015 9:53:27 AM commented:

I think it's a fantastic idea! Cannabis can be dangerous if you aren't educated. How do you know if the seller has mixed anything in with it or not? Among other safety issues. Then we are left to learn about this plant from people who may not have accurate information in the first place. Accurate education makes things safer for everybody.

Kevin D  on  7/2/2015 9:09:45 AM commented:

And thank you to Andrew H, Kevin L, and James C. I love it how avoiding being 'close minded' means 'closed mouthed'. Just as much as we want to praise ourselves for legalizing whatever makes us 'feel good' is cutting edge, then if someone wants to voice an opinion for a moral, stable society....we are ignorant and close minded. I agree, legalizing marijuana may let people switch to that and 'lay off the harder stuff'. And sure, it has health benefits. So does eating spinach and exercising and living simple and being positive. Colleges make money off the demands of society. If we want marijuana and to get educated, then I guess they have to provide classes for it. It probably is best to educate proper usage since marijuana isn't going anywhere. If you can't remove a societal problem then legalize it and educate about it.

Kevin D  on  7/2/2015 8:28:10 AM commented:

I think legalizing marijuana is going to be nationwide. And it is just one more bad decision that United States is taking. And it doubly sad to me that colleges now think that it's 'hip and cool' Here is a better approach, Don't use pot and give out scholarships for people who want to develop their brains and contribute positively to society. But hey, if it feels good, then society should do it! Forget morals....

Jessica C  on  7/2/2015 6:56:04 AM commented:

Kevin, Do you drink alcohol? Because people used to go to jail over that and it's legal now. Slavery was once legal but did that make it okay? No it didnt. Laws change. Educate yourself on cannabis and you will understand why laws are currently changing.

Nicole B.  on  7/2/2015 5:19:19 AM commented:

I love the idea of educating more people on how to run a business and be profitable. The cannibas industry is so lucrative, why wouldn't you want to attend these classes if you want to be successful in this field. This is the legal way to be a pothead!

Iris M  on  7/2/2015 4:58:40 AM commented:

Education is so essential to any movement. People need to understand all adverse effects to what they're doing, but at the same time, many don't actually care about the harm (if any) they're doing to their bodies. Take cigarettes for example, in the beginning they were thought to have no cons so the trend was somewhat understandable but even now that we know and are educated about the effects they have on the human body, thousands—if not millions purchase cigarettes daily. Many people don't care about the harm that can come to themselves as long as they get their high. Marijuana is supposed to be used for medical reasons, to aide those in severe pain... I support the idea of education on the topic and would attend the seminar if I had money and time, simply for the opportunity to learn.

Chris m  on  7/2/2015 1:20:52 AM commented:

I think this is a great idea

Chynna E  on  7/2/2015 12:44:55 AM commented:

There is no reason to disregard Marijuana as a useful resource, especially when most people are not given a proper education on the subject. There is no reason we can't continue to spread the information. Whether you are against it or for it, the least you can do is go to one of the seminars and learn about it and figure out what's being done with it. So I think these seminars are a great way to educate everyone about the possible benefits, or detriment, of this so called "wonder drug". Learn the information before you say anything. That is the best way possible to improve our future society.

Mariah Bickford  on  7/1/2015 10:47:24 PM commented:

Very beneficial idea in this pro cannabis age!

Rebekah P  on  7/1/2015 10:31:13 PM commented:

Legalizing marijuana extends way past being able to roll a joint with your friends. With these states legalizing pot they're helping to fight against the war on drugs. In places where marijuana is illegal millions of tax payers dollars are being used to lock up those who get caught with weed. They're being sent to jail for marijuana possession while places like California, Oregon and Washington are celebrating their new legalization. Love that scholarships.com is sharing this and helping stimulate different insights on the topic. I've learned a lot from the different perspectives and I hope "Cannabis College" reaches my university in the future :)

James C.  on  7/1/2015 10:11:48 PM commented:

Hurrah, now we can all get high, tune out, and dropout of society. Just what the world needs more beggars, panhandlers, and stoned out freaks.

Sugar Rhi  on  7/1/2015 9:45:43 PM commented:

What's up guys! Don't you think it's pretty nifty that this 'higher' learning establishment is breaking ground for all the other institutions who will eventually follow? Since agriculture in general has been an ongoing source of depate in the US, dividing our country in a lot of ways, maybe these plant wizards can help educate, unite, and slap smiles across a few faces along the way. Don't knock it til' you try it, and don't forget the boost our economies will get. Happy farming, cultivating, perveying everyone.

Adrienne W.  on  7/1/2015 8:06:48 PM commented:

l would definitely like to attend the seminars myself. I pray that I am fortunate enough to attend when they head to the East Coast.

Gilbert L  on  7/1/2015 7:57:10 PM commented:

I think it's ignorant to say that legalization of marijuana will lead to irresponsibility and poverty. Being a cash crop it should help push the U.S. out of part of its huge debt and secondly, the whole irresponsibility deal is definitely in the discretion of the user. Obsession and addiction will also be up to the user. Considering that the drug is not physically addicting users should have no problem stopping whenever the so choose to. I also get the whole "how can it be good when so many people go to jail for?" question but the fact remains that all arrests are for simply possessing the drug. Aside from that it's proven medicinal purposes have been researched and clearly proven for decades. Don't become swallowed up by the media. Do some research and educate yourselves.

Rosa Sparks  on  7/1/2015 7:30:36 PM commented:

If your only argument against weed is that it's illegal then you should really stop & educate yourselves on the plant itself as well as the industry.

Jakara J.  on  7/1/2015 7:22:29 PM commented:

I think its definitely good I know im starting a brand that deals with cannabis products and definitely need people to be educated some people dont want to be associated with drugs but were trying to change that can find me @karacoavenu for more details on our work

joe m  on  7/1/2015 6:36:48 PM commented:

It should be legal its safer than alcohol and as to someones comment about how can it be legal when so many go to jail for it lmao escorts our legal in navada but not here and its been around even before you that's for sure

Nick K  on  7/1/2015 6:08:13 PM commented:

I would absolutely, hands down attend Oaksterdam. Many people are up in arms about the legalization of marijuana throughout the US. But in today's age many Americans are up to their head in debt because of the amount of money tuition/ loans cost when the interest just keeps rising. Maybe it's time to change that because the education system is just a corrupted system that sets students up to fail because they are forced to learn subjects that they will never need to use in their field of study, but yet have to pay for classes that mean nothing. Maybe if more subjects that pertain to their field of study and are of the students interest (classes that actually teach them the knowledge to become successful throughout their life) replace the bs classes, the unemployment rate would decrease. Now a days, finding a job as young adults fresh out of college is hard because it's not about what you know, but who you know. And that's wrong.

Emma S  on  7/1/2015 6:00:31 PM commented:

I'm all for the legalization of marijuana. People are going to use it anyways so why not make it legal and tax it? I think it'd be interesting to attend the seminar even though I'm not a recreational user of marijuana. Cannabis has so many useful properties that most people don't understand. There are hundreds of different strands of marijuana used for different things (i.e. headaches, insomnia, anorexia, ect..). People only focus on the fact that you can 'get high' from it. I think that the legalization of marijuana will essentially do the economy good. Just think how many people out there who are smoking weed but aren't getting taxed on it. The economy could rake in some serious money if they go about taxing the right way. I think "Cannabis College" has a good mind set. Instead of pulling people away from the idea of legalizing marijuana, they're informing the public about different uses of it and how to cultivate it properly.

Dane M  on  7/1/2015 5:01:30 PM commented:

Hey Kevin, hate to break it to you, but God created pot. It was smoked and used by ancient civilizations and is obviously used today. Marijuana helps people who are very ill and can boost economic gain for this country. God wants you to love, man.

George L  on  7/1/2015 4:34:39 PM commented:

Cannabis is not the problem. If you are against weed it is because you have not taken the time to educate yourself on the matter. You would be very surprised if you knew the actual number of people who smoke marijuana on a regular basis, but of course it is hard to gather such data. Most people will at least try weed once and if they like it enough they may eventually use cannabis on a daily basis, but the problem with weed is that there is a negative connotation surrounding this plant (that we all know is harmless) so some people will go to a lot of trouble to do there best to hide the smell or smoke in private & safe location, but why go to all this trouble when it is much easier to pop a pill or snort a line & by today standards they are all equally as bad. I do not believe that marijuana is a gateway drug, but I do believe that if marijuan was legal most drug users would be satisfied with just smoking pot and not choosing to use actually addictive or harmful drugs....

Amber  on  7/1/2015 4:32:06 PM commented:

Andrew, you're an idiot. In a nutshell you are what is horribly wrong with America. Go away.

Kevin L  on  7/1/2015 4:13:34 PM commented:

It is a shame how society can dictate people's reality. There is nothing you can tell me that explains how something that people go to jail for, is becoming legal in some places. It makes no sense and it is wrong. We must truly look to God for our guidance and wisdom. Satan is using Man to deceive us and tear our lives apart. Wake up people. We must be the change we wish to see.

Brandon B  on  7/1/2015 4:12:46 PM commented:

Lol @ Andrew H. Poverty and addiction? Actually, doctors and scientists are discovering new ways that marijuana can be used to treat cancer, multiple sclerosis, ADHD, insomnia and eating disorders. Unfortunately, it has not been shown to help people with as severe a case of retardation as yourself. I couldnt help but notice you havent once protested the legal status of cigarettes, which are FAR more addictive and carcinogenic?

Frances A.  on  7/1/2015 4:12:23 PM commented:

I think this is wonderful! So many people are closed minded and are ignorant about marijuana and only know of the cons and believe the lies and rumors that are spread about the plant (such as it being addictive and that it leads to poverty). These are the people that need to be educated and I think it's great that people can learn the truth and understand that it's actually far better than what is legal (alcohol, tobacco) and everything it can do for individuals and for the economy.

Mal P  on  7/1/2015 3:41:16 PM commented:

Andrew, do u even know what youre talking about..? How would the nation get this advanced in cannabis if everyone got addicted and was irresponsible...? People make money and make a living off of this, just like all other everyday citizens. Ha. Youre irrelevant and you are the one that needs to be educated before saying it'll lead to all things negative. It'll lead to ACTUAL criminals serving prison time and even more money not wasted on the "drug war" come on bro. Ha.

Brian M.  on  7/1/2015 3:28:47 PM commented:

I love marijuanna. It has helped me get over my asthma, ADD, sleep problems and metabolism problems. I have been smoking for a few years now religiously and strain studies and cannabis laws intrigue me. Also, I was born and raised in Oakland before I moved to KC.i would love to attend there, maybe start there first rugby team... Maybe the Blazers...

Andrew H.  on  7/1/2015 2:41:20 PM commented:

Marijuana legalization is wrong for America and will lead to irresponsibility, poverty, and obsession/addiction. The fact that this is called a "college at all is a disgrace. What they're promoting will damage families and lead to broken lives and stand in the way of people reaching their full potential.

Devin R  on  7/1/2015 1:50:58 PM commented:

Marie P.... You are the EXACT close minded and ignorant people we are all talking about. Yes, alcohol and tobacco are bad. But weed isn't!! So don't add it to the group and say those two are already enough because weed doesn't even come close to how tobacco and alcohol harm you. Pls. People like you....please just learn.

Kaylie A.  on  7/1/2015 1:39:00 PM commented:

I think this is a great idea! People can get educated on marijuana and keep their focus on that instead of other drugs, like opiates or cocaine.

MWhit  on  7/1/2015 1:30:58 PM commented:

This is the " New Generation" Prohibition Movement. When Alcohol was finally legalized our economy grew and made many people, families wealthy! Jack Daniels, Jim Beam ect As well as put the American People to work. The downside is that with alcohol people get stupid, black out, get mean all kinds of personalities come out. With Marijuana people are mello, hungry and just fun to be around. I have never met anyone who wants to fight, kill or freak out when smoking Marijuana. I am sure there are some people whom might get paranoid or lazy but the majority just chill and achieve. So I say let' get our economy on track and legalize POT!!

Hannah B  on  7/1/2015 1:15:31 PM commented:

Cannabis is the reason I survived terminal cancer as a teen, I couldn't imagine a better way to educate students in a healthy manner other than them just going to party's and being stupid with something that has such great potential! Sign me up!

Vanessa H  on  7/1/2015 12:58:47 PM commented:

This is awesome. I would definitely attend one of their sessions! Cannabis cannot be compared to drugs like alcohol or tabacco because the effects and health risks are completely different, so please don't do that. Hemp can be used for a plethora of things n could most likely save us from this hole we've buried ourselves in. Legalize the green!

Margy T.  on  7/1/2015 12:55:36 PM commented:

Not only would it help boost the economy, it would also help certain people medicinally. I think everyone should take a puff every now and then. The government should just regulate pot like they do tobacco. There are too many recreational, health, and economical benefits to not legalize pot. On the contrary, I can only think of one negative- the uproar its legalization would cause from the people who gave pot its harsh stigma in the first place; well and sometimes, the munchies hit ya hard. Overall my message is educate yourself before you sound ignorant and close-minded.

Nia  on  7/1/2015 12:47:32 PM commented:

I feel as if marijuana is becoming more of an health factor that's why it's so easy to remove cigarettes because eventually nobody will smoke cigs but will be smoking legalized weed ! But it should be classes on it just like classes on acohol abuse because alcoholism is deadly and so is being high while driving to some . But if they can educate the affects and show the symptoms and control the amount of intake that the law will allow like alcohol why not educate

JS  on  7/1/2015 12:16:48 PM commented:

And not a word about side effects. Amazing.

Cheyenne C.  on  6/30/2015 10:22:51 PM commented:

Ithink that education about what will one day be legalized is a brilliant idea. Especially since marijuana is called a "gateway drug", maybe one day this will no longer be the case and stoners can live happily!

Jennifer Sweet L.  on  6/30/2015 7:23:54 PM commented:

I feel that only Doctors and Pharmacist are the ones that needs to learn more about this medication and we the people take it as directed by them. If I am not mistaken at lease two died when it became legal? And I did say at lease maybe more because people don't know how much to take and how often. It should be giving.

Wendy S  on  6/30/2015 7:09:39 PM commented:

Cannabis is one of the most valued plants since the history of farming it has clearly reversed the deficit in Colorado since its legalization. It's really not hard to understand why. This cash crop remaining illegal is the most obvious mistake being made. I hear the political debate of wether we want a bunch of potheads running around being stoned all the time or being a gateway to other forms of drugs. Let's be serious these arguments are being made by the people who ether have never tried it or simply are making more money leaving it illegal. The fact is I feel no shame in enjoying cannabis every single day. Only one problem! It's illegal. What if cannabis was our salvation for our financial future. Look at gold it was illegal to possess this precious metal at one point in time. If gold remained illegal we would have had our apocalypse years ago. We removed the gold standard 1971 now we have 18 trillion dollars in debt. Hey I can save a lot of talks and meetings. Legalize marijuana.

I feel that everyone do not have to engage in such activities. Their are all types of people in the world today that learn differently than others even perform differently from the information thats interpreted. I personal think they should do research on the ones that enjoy marajuana verses the people who dont.
