There are photos of marijuana leaves all over the campus of Stockton University and it’s the leaders of the school that have put them there. In addition to the creation of a cannabis studies minor program last fall, the school is now hosting its first Cannabis Fair and Business Expo.
“What these students are looking for, and the other folks here at this career fair are looking for, is what are the opportunities in the new cannabis industry where it is today and where it’s going tomorrow? For example, the job opportunities in New Jersey, we’ve had a 355% increase in jobs from 2018 to 2019. But the students are also really curious about the history of all this, and how did we get to prohibition and when are we coming out if it, when is legalization going to happen,” said Scott Rudder, president of the New Jersey CannaBusiness Association.
