Cannabis Industry Internship and Job Requirements


LIM College welcomes licensed and legal employing organizations in the business of cannabis. LIM College understands that marijuana (medical and/or adult-use) is legal in New York and in many other states yet remains prohibited under federal law. Further, Hemp and certain CBD products are federally legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. The regulatory requirements related to employment in the cannabis industry vary from state to state and are rapidly changing. Employment and internship opportunities may be limited or restricted based on state regulation and the extent to which a state has legalized the sale of cannabis. Some states have implemented licensing or other approval requirements for employment at a cannabis business. Students under age 21 may be restricted in their ability to work at a cannabis establishment and in accessing age restricted websites for employment information. A state may also require graduates or interns to undergo a criminal background check or other investigation prior to employment, the results of which could impact your ability to work in the cannabis industry. Age requirements and other employment stipulations may also vary by segments in the cannabis industry, such as ancillary, hemp, or CBD businesses. LIM College has not yet determined whether its cannabis business programs meet the cannabis employment licensing requirements of every state. As that information becomes available on a state-by-state basis, LIM College will update its disclosures appropriately.
