Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Mentorship in commercial domestic cannabis cultivation
by Ramirez, Eduardo B., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 69; 10096070
Abstract (Summary)

Social learning theories of crime help explain criminal achievement through the learning process. Utilizing two prominent social learning theories, this thesis explores the under-researched relationship between mentorship and domestic cannabis cultivation. This thesis uses data collected from an online survey taken by growers in the United States, Canada, and Belgium to examine the extent that social learning related variables can predict commercial, large scale cannabis cultivation. Results show some support for social learning theories and suggest that learning definitions favorable to cultivation are a significant part of mentorship. Policy implications are also discussed.
