Cannabis Industry Jobs Are Rolling In
With marijuana legalization on the rise, Monster is seeing an influx of cannabis companies posting jobs.
Looking for cannabis industry jobs? You're not alone. The times, they are a' changing—and quickly. About 91% of US adults say either that marijuana should be legal for medical and recreational use (60%) or that it should be legal for medical use only (31%).
And after the 2020 election, additional states voted to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and over, while other states voted in favor of creating medical cannabis programs. Furthermore, during the coronavirus pandemic, many states deemed marijuana dispensaries essential services, which means they were allowed to stay open while other businesses were forced to close their doors.
With the growing acceptance of weed blowing through the country comes another change: We're seeing an influx of marijuana companies posting weed career opportunities on Monster.
As with any company, the opportunities vary. Click on any of the below links, and you'll see job titles that range from sales to operations to retail. The jobs noted below are just a sample of what's currently available and include medical marijuana jobs as well as recreational usage jobs. As you check out the positions for which each company is hiring, remember that these listings are updated regularly, so come back frequently. And here's a hot tip: Depending on where you work, you may need a marijuana worker permit before you can get hired.
Granted, most of these jobs in the weed industry are found where weed is legal. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington—plus Washington DC, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands—have legalized marijuana for recreational use; more than half the states, plus the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have legalized marijuana for medical purposes. Expect to see more states adopting similar stances in the not too distant future.
To put it bluntly, these jobs move fast, so apply for jobs at these marijuana companies today, and while you're at it, set up a job alert to be notified when new cannabis industry jobs become available. Don't let your chances of an awesome job go up in smoke.
