The pot culture in America has changed rapidly over the years as more and more legislation has taken effect and changed the way we view the plant.
While so many people are employed and make a good living because of the legal cannabis industry, the federally illegal status of the plant means the government does not count these employed people in their employment statistics.
However, those in the cannabis industry are not flying completely under the radar. Leafly found that manufacturers and distributors for both medicinal and recreational weed had a dramatic increase in jobs in 2018, with over 64,000 new positions coming in. Over 211,000 cannabis-related jobs exist across the nation now.
There are lots of jobs in the cannabis industry and some you probably have already thought about. Working in a dispensary is a fun way to get into the industry and help people hands-on, but there are so many other cannabis-related jobs that are oftentimes looked over.
