SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Medical marijuana is spawning new business opportunities in Arizona. Among them is a Scottsdale school where people can learn the finer techniques of growing marijuana for medicinal use.
The Arizona Republic reports the Green Horizons University is opening soon and its director says there’s a need for medical-marijuana education before dispensaries and cultivation centers open across Arizona later this year.
There’s no mascot or nickname at Green Horizons University. It is among spinoff businesses that have surfaced since Arizona voters narrowly approved a ballot measure in November that led to the creation of closely controlled use of medical marijuana.
Scottsdale’s Green Horizons will offer a four-hour beginning-cultivation course for $99. The school plans to sell growing equipment for medical-marijuana cultivation and offer legal, medical and auditing consultation to dispensary operators.
