Oaksterdam University is a hub for cannabis activism. Many of our staff and instructors are pioneers in the cannabis activist community. We, along with other cannabis businesses in our local Oakland area, play a vital role in revitalizing our neighborhood and serving the community.
Oaksterdam University has a long history of activism, going back over twenty-five years, stretching from the first medical cannabis laws in California all the way to Washington DC, where our OU forefathers fought it out in the first US Supreme Court Case to allow the medicine to necessity patients.
OU initiated and sponsored the first statewide legalization campaign in California in over thirty years. This bold action began the wave of successful legalization efforts in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, D.C.and beyond.
