CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J., April 15 The New Jersey state legislature passed the bill S119 legalizing medical marijuana on January 18, 2010. Harmony Foundation (a non-profit organization), in association with Greenway University, is starting to hold educational seminars which will cover everything needed to know about the medical marijuana / cannabis industry.

In the next six months, the state health department must decide who will be permitted to open "Alternative Treatment Centers" (ATC), how medical marijuana should be tested, in what communities it should be sold and to design rules and regulations for the New Jersey medical marijuana industry.

A lot of entrepreneurs in New Jersey are looking for information about becoming a qualified, licensed caregiver and how to open an ATC. The knowledge about the new law, marijuana research, cultivation and culinary techniques are crucial for the new industry. Starting a new business is always challenging and overwhelming, and taking into consideration that New Jersey law is the most restrictive in the nation, anyone who is interested in this industry must have professional education, consulting and high quality training for the medical marijuana / cannabis industry.

Deciding to help future entrepreneurs, health professionals, advocacy groups, insurance companies and others interested in the new industry, Harmony Foundation, in association with Greenway University, is holding seminars to empower with all necessary information for safe and compliant access for medical marijuana / cannabis industry. Leading industry experts will provide all information related to the medical marijuana industry and current legislation. Seminars will include these topics: current state of the MMJ industry across the US; different uses of medical marijuana for patient use; standardization of medicine and quality; cultivation techniques for growing medical marijuana for patient use; business solutions for the medical marijuana industry; New Jersey's new law and legal issues.

Greenway University will provide a Certificate of Completion for those who attend the seminar.

The medical marijuana industry offers employment and other new opportunities for non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, health care professionals and advocacy groups.
