Cannabis Jobs: A Boom
In 2018, The Farm Bill was passed that legalized producing, selling, and buying of cannabinol (CBD), or more accurately, CBD from the hemp plant. Almost 50 states in the US can now trade and consume CBD. CBD from marijuana is also made legal in 11 states, including Washington DC. Due to this bill, the Cannabis industry is growing, which means there is also a requirement for workers. (1)
Due to the legalization of CBD in the country, every job in the USA can be limitated into the Cannabis industry.
Moreover, other countries have been taking steps towards legalizing cannabis as well. BDS analytics analyzed that if cannabis is legalized in other countries, worldwide spending will increase by 39.1% by 2019. This outcome is possible due to the increased spending of adults on cannabis products. (1,2)
