DRUGGED DRIVING

This state has a per se drugged driving law enacted. In their strictest form, these laws forbid drivers from operating a motor vehicle if they have a detectable level of an illicit drug or drug metabolite (i.e., compounds produced from chemical changes of a drug in the body, but not necessarily psychoactive themselves) present in their bodily fluids above a specific, state-imposed threshold.

HEMP

This state has an active hemp industry or has authorized research. Hemp is a distinct variety of the plant species cannabis sativa L. that contains minimal (less than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Various parts of the plant can be utilized in the making of textiles, paper, paints, clothing, plastics, cosmetics, foodstuffs, insulation, animal feed, and other products.

MANDATORY MINIMUM SENTENCE

When someone is convicted of an offense punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence, the judge must sentence the defendant to the mandatory minimum sentence or to a higher sentence. The judge has no power to sentence the defendant to less time than the mandatory minimum. A prisoner serving an MMS for a federal offense and for most state offenses will not be eligible for parole. Even peaceful marijuana smokers sentenced to “life MMS” must serve a life sentence with no chance of parole.

MEDICAL CBD

This state has passed a medical CBD law allowing for the use of cannabis extracts that are high in CBD and low in THC in instances where a physician has recommended such treatment to a patient with a state-qualifying condition.

The judge has no power to sentence the defendant to less time than the mandatory minimum. A prisoner serving an MMS for a federal offense and for most state offenses will not be eligible for parole. Even peaceful marijuana smokers sentenced to “life MMS” must serve a life sentence with no chance of parole.

The knowledge I’ve gained through both the basic course and advanced grow courses at the Orlando campus are priceless. instead of trying to learn from 10,000 different web pages, videos and opinions, the entire LSU team has organized the material into a simplified step by step process that then branches out to more technical aspects of the industry with great learning tools like hands on labs. I’m absolutely ecstatic someone is spreading this knowledge, and I hope it only GROWS from here. thank you all again.

This was so informative and fun at the same time and you really learn about the medical marijuana industry in a legitimized way.

Knowing about Cannabis and LEARNING about cannabis is totally different. You will learn so much that you will wonder why more people who want change are not taking this class. Maybe it’s because they have no idea that this University exists . I drove 3 hrs just to make sure I took advantage of this opportunity. Instructors make it so easy to understand and hands on classes make these complicated YouTube videos much easier than it seems. Plus… Chris will make sure you really relax while learning how this class is worth investing your time, effort in acquiring the knowledge to be on top of the Cannabis industry.

These guys are real and professional! I can’t explain how appreciative I am for this course. I’ll be coming back to learn some of the advanced courses! I hope to see this organization continue to grow and blossom into the industry standard 🙂 As a patient, I felt super welcomed and as a student I felt really happy with the money I spent.

As most people, I was skeptical about this school. After spending 9 hours today at the hands on class, I could NOT be more impressed. Everyone was extremely professional. All the reviews are spot on. 5 stars all the way. TONS of knowledge packed into one day. If you want to start in the legal cannabis industry, you’d be silly not to go here. They also have a job board and job fairs all the time to help place you after giving you all the knowledge you need to succeed no matter if you’re a budtender, manager or even grower.

I just completed the Medical Marijuana Dispensary Management course at Learn Sativa University. It was the most rewardingAnd interesting course of studies I ever did. I am now empowered to achieve much more than most of my peers. I highly recommend all young people who think they can’t have a career please consider this.You could have a high paying job in a stable company .They actually have job fairs o often. Employers hire hundreds of workers on spot!

Just completed the Dispensary Management Course at Learn Sativa University.I am glad to say that I was very pleased with the immense degree of knowledge provided to us. Having covered an enormous amount of material, I now feel empowered to pursue this field in depth with a renewed sense of confidence at a professional level. Our trainers Pat and Chris both possess a pleasant and down to earth nature which allowed us to ask whatever questions came to mind. Their combined extensive knowledge and experience in the subject was definitely impressive, and their commitment to establishing a high standard of integrity and compassion stands out at in all aspects. There was no question they could not answer or address. After completing this course I am now interested in pursuing this field at a more advanced level.I will definitely be pursuing their more advanced courses in the near future .Another positive aspect of this University is their commitment towards assisting the graduate with networking and locating recognised employment opportunities both local and nationwide .I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in pursuing this field at a professional level. You will NOT be disappointed ! Thanks again Pat and Chris for a great course and look forward to returning to the campus very soon.Brad from Tampa, Fl.

Wow! If you want to learn everything cannabis, this is the place to do it. The staff and instructors are professional, knowledgeable, kind, and sharp. The course was worth every penny, if not more. They are on the forefront of this field. Awareness and education is power, and needed to eliminate the stigma that marijuana became.

Great school! You can see the passion the staff/teachers have, they break things down to allow even some with some prior knowledge to understand how to do things right and with dispensary etiquette.

Just received the BEST education on cannabis thanks to Learn Sativa University. I was skeptical at first, but that instantly went away as soon the class started. To meet and learn from people who feel as strongly as I do about cannabis was refreshing. The experience was very informative and professional, and I’d recommend this course to anyone who is interested. I’m excited to apply everything I learned today, and I just want to thank everyone who is a part of Learn Sativa University; it’s people like you that are going to help make an impact in this industry. I’m grateful to have been able to have the opportunity to meet you guys, and look forward to crossing paths again in the near future!

My experience with” Learn Sativa Institute of Cannabis & Training” was very informative and, at the same time, fun. Both Pat & Chris are knowledgeable in the cannabis Industry. More importantly, their method of delivering the education, “Law & Growing,” to me as a student was a great experience. Highly recommended for future students.A.Perez

Einstein said, “We’re all ignorant..just in different subjects.” In saying that, I came into the Dispensary Management Course with 2 years of knowledge based FYI of my own research. This course is designed for anyone no matter your experience level in cultivating, growing, or dispensing cannabis medicine. The course fee is a small price to pay for the current world knowledge you receive in just 4 short weeks. I graduated today, taking away more insider information to add to my dossier and cannabis culture knowledge. Thanks to Pat & Chris, for making the approach to the industry on a “crawl before you can walk” level for anyone. Everyone at LSU is down to earth, genuine in their desire to educate those willing to put forth the time, effort and capacity to want to slice their piece of the 52.5 Billion pie!

I signed up for the 8 hour class and I thought it was going to be long and some what boring like high school, but boy I was wrong. Pat made it so fun and informative that time went by quick for me. I had a blast and will definitely be signing up for other future classes.
