Already, hundreds of thousands of people are employed through the cultivation and sale of legal cannabis, representing more jobs than in coal, textiles, or breweries. 

LeafCann says it will employ more than 1000 people at its Adelaide cultivation, research and manufacturing facility.

Arcview Market Research, which focuses on cannabis industry trends, projects the industry will support 467,000 jobs by 2022.

The industry added more than 64,000 jobs last year — a 44% increase!

As of 2019, Legal Cannabis Has Created 211,000 Full-Time Jobs in America. 

The marijuana industry added 64,389 jobs in 2018, an increase of 44% from the year before. 

You may not realize it, but the legal weed industry is among the fastest-growing in the United States.

In 2017, Colorado eclipsed $1 billion in marijuana sales in eight months; in 2016, it took 10 months. 

In the USA you're more likely to know or be able to find a weed worker than a dental hygienist. 

If we tally up the full-time jobs supported by the cannabis industry (both medical and adult use) in the nation’s legal medical and adult use markets, we reach a total of 122,814 full time jobs.

Students like Karoway are getting formally educated in cannabis to help set them in apart in an industry that currently employs some 150,000 people.
