Peter Carscadden, Director of Business Development, Lift Cannabis Co., "I took Introduction to Access to Marijuana for Medical Purposes at KPU because I saw what cannabis is able to do for patients and the uphill battle that the industry faced and I was passionate about making a difference. KPU helped me dive head first into a constantly evolving industry. I now work for a cannabis communications company and advocate for patients in a way I never thought possible."
