"Cannabis sales in the state of Illinois increased by 13% in FY2022.

The University of Illinois Springfield partnered with Green Flower, a training platform for cannabis professionals. They offer four different certificate programs: healthcare & medicine, cannabis compliance & risk management, law & policy, business, and agriculture & horticulture.

The programs are fully online and are available to everyone, not just UIS students. Robert Kerr, the Director of Continuing and Professional Education at UIS, said this program has helped increase profits from the cannabis industry throughout the state."
