JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The University of North Florida has expanded its online cannabis education classes in partnership with Green Flower, a leading provider of cannabis education, with the additions of the Cannabis Compliance and Risk Management program and the brand-new Cannabis Product Development and Design program.
