Greenway University sets medical marijuana industry standards by receiving full formal state approval while adding ten additional state approved & regulated medical marijuana courses

PRNewswire — Greenway University, the industry’s leading medical marijuana educational provider, has received full formal state approval from the Colorado Department of Higher Education. Greenway University marks yet another industry milestone by moving from probationary status to full status as a recognized Colorado vocational school. In addition, Greenway University has also received authorization to teach ten additional medical marijuana state approved courses — making it the first and only such state approved and regulated medical marijuana courses in the United States. Greenway University is renowned for its compliance driven medical marijuana educational services in California, Colorado, Arizona and the Western US.

“We are extremely thankful to the state of Colorado for allowing us to become a part of history for the entire medical marijuana industry. This monumental decision further validates our forward thinking messages of education, professionalism and industry leading programs,” Greenway University founder and CEO Gus Escamilla, said. “We feel incredibly blessed and thankful to the state of Colorado for providing us with this monumental decision and approving us for an additional 10 state approved and regulated medical marijuana education courses that range from Budtenderâ„¢, medicine making, tinctures, concentrates, continuing legal education to advanced cultivation courses that set the standard for a higher level of professional education for the entire medical marijuana industry.”

Escamilla added, “This marks yet another historic milestone for our industry. We recently announced our second campus development plans into the Arizona marketplace with passing of Proposition 203 with further expansion plans across the US with the continued legalization of the medical marijuana industry. We are exceptionally excited about the Arizona marketplace. Our first weekend course was such an incredible success with over 300 students in attendance that we immediately scheduled a second seminar for February 26th and 27th, 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona to meet the growing demand.” Additionally, Greenway University offers internships and job placement assistance.

  1. Is this like Oaksterdam?  Looking at their website I am confused as to whether its a school or a
    company that holds seminars?  I am interested n learning the trade and came across Greenway in my search.  Do they hold all day
    seminars, in ball rooms like the Multi Level Marketing dudes or do they actually offer structured courses
    with regular class schedules?  If you can offer insight I would appreciate it.  According to their website they seem to offered seminar type classes at scattered intervals.

    Yes Gus escimilla ( who’s actual last name is escurza) ran capital financial resources, Inc. As a DBA of LGM ( Liza got mad) that’s Liza Haworth x – wife of anthony Haworth . Liza and Gus then changed the name to 1st capital financial resources, located on brand blvd. In glendale CA. Opened a branch in Fresno and rancho Cucamonga and then move Glendale to Burbank.
    Gus goes by escimilla because he was convicted of fraud in real estate and when I worked for him at Capital financial he actually had an ankle monitor on.
    Liza started this company because Anthony he husband and partner had an affair and they divorced , so “LGM” was formed she and Gus could take all the agents from Anthony.
    And yes it was a total fraud shop! Gus is a great salesmen and Liza is smart . I am really surprised that this is what they do now. Gus’s x wife Amy worked in the office and they had LGM escrow run by margret beccet who is also a felon.
    Any other questions?

  3. He is a scam….I know from personal experience. He worked for me as a general manager when I was involved with another marijuana school. He worked for me for 1 month, took everything I taught him and stole my lawyers articles of incorporation and started this Greenway shit….Marc Kent did federal time for money laundering.

    Hi agree “.Greenway University is a complete scam, they are a band of crooks from the mortgage business who are bent on taking over this business, DO NOT wast your time and money with them, they will rob you! These people know nothing about what they are teaching and are out for money, that’s it!Marc Kent is a executive director with Greenway University. He is a ex lawyer that was convicted of insurance fraud in California. One of the largest cases of fraud with many attorneys he recruited and then ratted on in the end to save his own ass.

    It is true that Marc Kent has helped set up over 200 collectives in Southern California. Do you want to know what happened to the vast majority of these collectives he set up?? They got raided or shut down. He charged people $3500 or more to fill out a couple of sheets of paper at the LA business license office. He could not represent people as a lawyer because he was disbarred. He acted as a consultant that once the money was paid he was gone. Would you like to know how many collective owners are livid with his services. A lot….. Do yourself a favor and stay away from Greenway University…. Bad karma and bad business ethics all around.

    Rainforest Collective in Los Angeles has some of the worst weed in LA…. Check out weedmaps and read the reviews for yourself.

    Also the CEO Gustavo ESCAMilla is one of the crooks in the mortgage industry who ran a fraudulent refinance factory that was shut down by the feds.

  6. I am aware of everything that is going on in this business, I agree with Rick. I attended a class in Burbank, CA and I recognized Gus from old real estate convention, him and his company got me sold on a very bad loan in the past. I already watched this guys movies that is free for growing and learned a lot more…http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x9sio1_jorge-cervantes-ultimate-grow-pt-1_shortfilms

    As far as Mark Kent everything Rick said is true. Mark Kent has a very bad name in the business for all his wrong doing.
    I think what Rick was getting at is that the people behind this business have a bad name from their past.

    My experience with the class was that they are in experienced and will lead you in a direction that is not safe.

  7. Get a life dude!! Greenway has been Great to me and my family. My 62 year old mother even attended. She was very happy as well. You souldn’t say such negative things about Greenway University. The people i met when we attended were great, the entire event was professional, and they didn’t even try and sell us anything. it was just information and an awesome education!!
