When one door slams, another one opens.

Karen Korn found a career in marijuana when she walked through that open door.

Karen tells "What Had Happened Was" podcast host Amelia Robinson how being booted out of a job propelled her and her business partner Audra Sparks to open Leaf Medic, an online school for medical marijuana professionals.

The state-approved company also offers consultations to medical marijuana patients.
