Donavan Carr is the founder of Jacksonville’s newest school, Cannabis University of Florida, which offers two classes that teach all about the business of medical marijuana and how to grow it. Carr says he established the school after hearing multiple stories of patients who benefited from the drug.
“People don’t know that much about medical marijuana, and it’s the old taboo of just being a stoner, but if you don’t have people who know how to grow it, then you’re not going to be able to bring it to the market to help those people who are in need.”
Attorney, Eric Friday, said there is no question that what Carr is doing is legal. Friday said teaching people how to set up a business is Carr’s right, even if what they’d be selling isn’t yet legal: “This is what the first amendment is all about. If Florida decides to pass it, these people will be ahead of the game.”
Florida voters will decide whether to approve medical marijuana in eight months.
