QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

A workshop for people looking to work in the medical marijuana business was held Saturday at the Town N Country Inn and Suites in Quincy.

Herbal Remedies Dispensary Manager Andy Schnack says Saturday was meant to educate people on what it means to work in a dispensary and what information potential employees would need to know when it comes to recommending products to patients. 

Schnack says there was a small exam at the end of workshop and those who passed received a certificate of completion. 

"This just helps them feel a little more accredited like they took a class and got something out of it," Schnack said. "It'll make them more interesting to other employers, they've taken the time, they've invested in themselves to learn a little more about this industry."

Schnack says they're looking to hire six to ten new employees.
