Dozens of students have graduated from a school in downtown Oakland that prepares people to work in the medical marijuana industry.

"Oaksterdam University" is actually a weekend class that costs about $200 dollars.

Students are taught how to cultivate and cook with marijuana, learn which types of cannabis are the best for certain ailments, as well as the laws of dispensing medical marijuana which is defined as legal under state law, but is considered illegal by the federal government.

Classes are sold out through May.
