We understand that with this rapidly growing industry many New Yorkers are eager to pursue a career in the cannabis industry. Due to the lack of resources to get started or the fear of participating because of the impact of cannabis prohibition in communities of color, many are unable to seize the opportunities that are currently available in the industry.

To help prepare community members for a career in the industry, we will host a workshop to provide insight and explore the job opportunities available throughout the cannabis industry, from seed to sale. We will also offer community support resources to help guide New Yorkers on their path to Cannabis Career, Advocacy, Business, or even for consumers or patients who would like to be more informed.

Attendees will have access to the following:

Cannabis Industry & Cannabis Career Training Presentation by CWI

The legislation legalizing cannabis in New York was a game changer, ending the war on drugs that led to generations of mass incarceration and closed off economic opportunities to communities across the state. It also launched a new legal industry that will create a lot of jobs. In this workshop, you’ll learn about the job opportunities available throughout the cannabis industry, from seed to sale.
