Since its opening in 2007, Oaksterdam University has been the topic of much debate in the media. The ground breaking school has been featured on Fox News, CNBC, MSNBC, NPR, G4 TV, Current TV, National Geographic, as well as countless local news stations.
Oaksterdam University's first major national news was on Fox News. Though Fox is a very conservative channel, Oaksterdam University was very pleased that the coverage was more "fair and balanced". The segment featured a LIVE REMOTE from Oaksterdam University's first classroom!
Phil Eastman with Current TV was the next channel to air a piece on Oaksterdam University. Phil concentrated most of his piece on Sean Mikuriya, the son of Dr. Tod Mikuriya (Prop 215 co-author) and student of Oaksterdam University.
Mike Mibach from local FOX news affiliate KTVU stopped by and spent the day with us.
CNBC aired their first two segments on Oaksterdam University next. Choosing to focus on the new Los Angeles campus, this piece focused more on the econmics of medical marijuana in California. The audio gets out of sync in these clips.
And part 2 of the CNBC report. This also features MMJ hero Jeff Jones. The audio gets out of sync in these clips.
Sensing the turning tide on the perception of cannabis in the United States, after visiting Oaksterdam University, CNBC decided to do a complete program dedicated to the cannabis industry. Oaksterdam was the main focus of the program.
National Geographic was the next media company to drop by Oaksterdam. Airing an hour on the Cannabis industry called "Marijauana Nation", this was a very positive and popular program. National Geographic would later come back to Oaksterdam to film an entire show.
On a lighther note, Doug Benson and Alison Hayslip came by to re-visit Oaksterdam. This was Doug Benson's first trip back to Oaksterdam since filming "Super High Me". Doug was a class act and a joy to be around during filming.
Richard Lee participated in a Live satellite interview on Geraldo At Large. The opposition, for some reason, is Billy Baldwin.
Days after the debate on cannabis, Geraldo decided to send camera crews to Oaksterdam. This segment got prematurely truncated due to breaking news.
Due to the popularity of the segment, Geraldo At Large decided to run a full segment days later. Part 1 features a rather profound appearance by former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura.
