 9 Jobs that Legalized Marijuana Would Create

9 Jobs that Legalized Marijuana would Create

By The Stoner's Cookbook

Marijuana is becoming a huge industry in Colorado & Washington. With any industry, there'll be a need for skilled workers; here are 9 existing jobs that will become demanded as the industry grows.

  • Educator

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Legalized marijuana would need education to ensure the public uses the drug responsibly and correctly. Much like safe alcohol consumption and safe sex, safe marijuana use will be equally important.

  • Specialized Security

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    While security is already a huge field , marijuana facilities would have site-specific rules and responsibilities for security guards.

  • Curing/Inventory

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Curing is essential to decarboxylate your marijuana, giving it more consistent moisture levels, a smoother smoke & higher potency. Having someone to properly cure and keep track of all this is a must.

  • Manicuring

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Manicuring is tedious and technical, but definitely necessary. Under supervision of breeders, manicurists remove the little leaves from the flower, essentially separating the good stuff from the bad.

  • Grower/Breeder

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Growers and breeders are the watchful eye of any grow operation. They're responsible for the cloning, transplanting, trimming, feeding and all other aspects of maintaining the plant in the warehouse.

  • Bud Doctor

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    With marijuana being used as a medicine, it is extremely important to have qualified professionals specialize in marijuana for proper prescription and diagnosis. 

  • Hash Maker

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Hash makers extract pure THC from marijuana plants. With many drugs and products that require simply THC, it's not hard to see why this position will be in high demand.

  • Budtender

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Much like how you would have a bartender to mix your drinks and provide more information on your alcohol of choice, you should expect the same from a budtender. 

  • Cannabis Chef

    By The Stoner's Cookbook

    Legalized marijuana will lead to a higher demand of edibles. After all, not everyone likes to smoke. With that, there will also be a higher demand of chefs who know how to work and cook with cannabis.
