Cannabis Industry Estimated To Bring 200,000 New Jobs in 2015

Cannabis Industry Estimated To Bring 200,000 New Jobs in 2015

Legalizing the use of cannabis for either medicinal or recreational purposes has produced many positive results. The plant, itself, helps to ease the suffering of many people with debilitating medical conditions. Legalization and sales have provided state and local governments with tax revenue. It has even reduced strain on the judicial system by allowing law enforcement officers to focus efforts and allocated much needed resources elsewhere, thus reducing court costs by processing fewer non-violent offenders.

There may even be a greater benefit provided by the newly budding cannabis industry in the form of job creation. CannaInsider estimates that the legitimate cannabis industry will introduce 200,000 new jobs by the end of 2015.

Matt Karnes of GreenWave Advisors, an independent financial research company for the cannabis industry, agrees. He explained in the released statement,

“By 2020, assuming the most likely progression of state by state legalizaiton, we expect the combined (medical and adult use) retail marijuana market to reach $21 Billion. Jobs are just the beginning. A cultural shift towards the cannabis plant is taking place.”

CannaInsider released a list of some of the new job titles created with marijuana legalization in an effort to shed some light for those living in states where marijuana prohibition is still very present. The list includes the following job titles:

  • Cultivator
  • Edible Artisan
  • Lab Technician
  • Extraction Technician
  • Compliance Consultant
  • Cannabis Tour Guide
  • Budtender
  • Software Developer
  • Dispensary Manager
  • Cannabis Attorney
  • Packaging Designer
  • Security Consultant
  • Health Educator

Just as with any industry, some positions are at the bottom of the totem pole, while others are at the top. Head cultivators can make over $200,000 per year, while the average budtender makes closer to $30,000. An interesting point about the jobs in this industry is that they cover a wide spectrum. For example, there are positions representing the fields of science, technology, agriculture, culinary, law and more, all in one industry. As more states pass marijuana policy reform measures, more jobs will be created.

United States Marijuana Use: Map & Statistics By State

United States Marijuana Use: Map & Statistics By State

As of this week, the number of states in America where marijuana is legal for recreational use has doubled, the District of Columbia also legalized, without dispensaries, and even the U.S. territory of Guam joined the legalization movement. Which states report having the largest population of residents aged eighteen to twenty-five who have used marijuana in the last month? Which state has the highest percentage of people who have ever tried pot at least once? The maps below, from Live Science, will show you that and more using information collected from the results of the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health.

The map below shows what percentage of people in each state report having ever tried cannabis at some time in their life. The survey included people between the ages of eighteen and sixty years old. Vermont is home to the largest population percentage of people who have used cannabis at least once with a hefty 67.1 percent. People in Utah are the least likely to have tried marijuana with only 38 percent. About fifty percent of people in the United States report having used the plant at least once.

mmj-by-state

People between the ages of eighteen and twenty five report the highest for marijuana use. The map below shows what percentage of people in that age range reports having used cannabis at least once in the last month. States in the Northeast and Northwest corners of the country, Colorado, Montana and Hawaii all rank in the highest percentage range of 23.09-33.18 percent. That percentage range means that in some states, up to 33 percent of the population used marijuana in the last thirty days. The lower range of 8.31-14.42 percent is concentrated in the northern mid-west part of the country and the south. North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Utah, Louisiana, and Alabama are among the states reporting the lowest percentages.

mmj-18-25

Today, many Americans have used marijuana, and many more will try it for the first time in the coming years as marijuana law reform sweeps across the nation. If the number of people using marijuana increases, the number of people who grow their own will probably also increase. The map below shows which states report having people who cultivate their own cannabis. The highest percentage range is 1.5-4.1 percent. California, Nevada, Vermont and Maine are among the states with the most Americans who grow their own. Alaska reported the highest with 4.1 percent of the population. The lowest range is 0.2-0.4 percent. States reporting that range include Illinois, Louisiana, and Nebraska.
