The Colorado Department of Higher Education gave the green light to a university which will teach adult students how to grow, sell and distribute medical marijuana.
The Greenway University meets minimum standards set forth by state statutes and will be categorized with other vocational schools like culinary or cosmetology training.
The Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools voted to approve a permanent campus near I-25 and Alameda Avenue in Denver. The state-certified school will have at least eight instructors.
As for a hands-on experience, the school's Web site says marijuana will not be allowed in the classrooms for now. Students will receive textbooks, and will have to do homework and pass tests. Degrees are not given, but students do earn certificates.
Courses take between three and five months, and can cost between $300 and $2,000 depending on the curriculum. Greenway's coursework covers everything from human resources management to buying product, from accounting and facility operation to botany.
