WHO WE ARE

About Us


Cannabis policy reform is our opportunity to invest in those most harmed by the unjust war on drugs. Through education, we can begin repairing the harms of decades of cannabis prohibition.

Our Story

Our organization was founded in 2020 to help the state prepare for the oncoming adult-use cannabis market in Minnesota. Entrepreneurs and prospective cannabis employees need support to navigate the newest and fast-growing industry in the state; that’s where the Minnesota Cannabis College comes in.

Our organization is diverse and made up of individuals from various employment backgrounds, including career and collegiate education, state regulation, organizational leadership, and cannabis business operations.

Our organization, similar to Minnesota’s cannabis industry, is just beginning to grow. We began less than a year ago with a mission to provide quality cannabis education. We work towards that goal every day and look forward to serving the state as our cannabis industry continues to grow.

This is Why

While there are many reasons why we do the work that we do, these numbers show why our work is so important.
