California’s new cannabis industry has a job for you.

...And it’s not in growing, trimming, or testing. Cannabis is nothing new to Californians - though recreational marijuana was only legalized in January, the medicinal industry has had a hold on the state for over two decades. For a supposedly ‘emerging market,’ recreational cannabis already has an astonishing level of infrastructure, regulation, and built-in clientele. So why join now? There’s a distinctly youthful energy to the industry - and it’s not just that cannabis appeals especially to millennials. Getting into this market now means you’ll have the infrastructure and support of an established industry without sacrificing the opportunity to shape its future and the creative freedom to determine your own path.
