Oaksterdam University was founded in Oakland California. We are very much aware that the regulations and laws concerning cannabis use and businesses are different in every jurisdiction in the country. Different states and cities have their own standards and rules, which makes it impossible to teach a course that encompasses all possible permutations of the law or for specific localities.
We, therefore, use California and the Bay Area as examples of what is possible to encounter in the cannabis industry. We do not teach specific laws and standards as they vary from location to location and they also change over time.
Instead, we teach students how to research, interpret, and understand their own local regulations by examining California as a case study. After all, California does serve as a model for the rest of the nation and the world when they decide to implement cannabis laws.
At OU, we teach you what you need to know not just what you want to know.
