The US addresses HAZMAT issues that often arise when cleaning up illegal grows. 

The U.S. Forest Service has teamed up with HAZMAT firm NES to address the chemical mess that’s leftover in illegal grows.  

Agents often get sick and sometimes require trips to the ER after eradicating plants. 

In an effort to address the issue, the US Forest Service and NES developed a program to specifically deal with the chemicals and hazardous materials used on large cultivation sites.

Currently, this is the only training program available in the US that’s approved by OSHA. 

Cannabis jobs are coming to Victoria, Australia

Australian government awarded nearly $2 million to medical cannabis firm Cann Group to assist with upgrades at their production facility in Mildura. 

The project has created a number of jobs for locals and will be capable of growing nearly up to 80 tons of cannabis. 

The goal is to be able to supply at least half of Australia’s medicinal cannabis by 2028

A cannabis certification program is coming to Oakton Community College this fall

The program will focus on transportation, logistics, and supply chain management. 

Interested students will be offered in-state rates for the online class portion regardless of residency.
