Cannabis jobs are rolling in
With marijuana legalization on the rise, Monster is seeing an influx of cannabis companies posting jobs.
Looking for cannabis jobs? You're not alone. The times, they are a’ changing—and quickly. About six in 10 Americans (65%) are in favor of legalized marijuana, according to a CBS News poll. Furthermore, many states have deemed marijuana dispensaries during the coronavirus lockdowns, which means they are allowed to stay open while other businesses are forced to close their doors. With the growing acceptance of weed blowing through the country comes another change: We’re seeing an influx of companies posting cannabis jobs 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 tech to 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.
Granted, most of the marijuana jobs are found where the drug is legal. Eleven states—Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington—plus the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational use; more than half the states (33), plus the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico, 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 today, and while you’re at it, set up a job alert to be notified when new cannabis jobs become available. Don’t let your chances of an awesome job go up in smoke.
