This is according to Minister of Education & Agriculture Dr Natalio Wheatley, who made the announcement while discussing the recently-passed Cannabis Licensing Act during a live radio broadcast this week.
Dr Wheatley said access to these scholarships will equip locals with the necessary knowledge base and skill set to help further the medical cannabis industry, once it officially gets going in the territory.
“We have a proposed investor or someone who is very interested in getting into the market that we’ve been working with, [who] has already made full scholarships available for persons to go to school and study to some of the best agricultural universities in the world, like the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville,” the minister stated.
“So we are going to send persons to school to study this and to come back and to work in the industry. So these are high-level jobs, well-paying jobs,” he added.
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.
