Inside Stockton's cannabis minor giving students ‘leg up’ on growing industry

As the medical marijuana industry continues to expand in New Jersey, with the possibility of recreational use in the near future, Stockton University said its new minor will help prepare those soon to enter the workforce.

“We are really looking to help our students enter into a new industry in whatever capacity they choose to do so,” said Professor Ekaterina Sedia, who coordinates the Cannabis Studies minor. “This is what’s coming down the pike.”


About 30 students from various majors have signed up for the first class, Cannabis Law. The class is taught by Bridget Hill-Zayat, a lawyer from the Maryland-based Hoban Law Group, which bills itself as the nation’s “premier cannabusiness law firm.”
