New Jobs Report Finds Cannabis Industry is “America’s Single Greatest Job Creation Engine”

When the production facility is fully operational LeafCann expects to generate more than 1400 jobs, in addition to 850 created during development.

The Andrews Labor Government’s flagship Medicinal Cannabis Industry Development Plan aims to see Victoria supplying half of Australia’s medicinal cannabis by 2028 – creating 500 jobs.

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.
