News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Feb. 16, 2018: Caribbean nations pay attention – a US state is boosting employment with weed jobs.

According to ZipRecruiter an online employment marketplace, the US state of California is set to become the largest creator of weed or marijuana jobs not just across the nation but in the world!

“When it comes to growth in this industry, we see the most significant growth in states that recently loosened their marijuana laws,” the ZipRecruiter report states.

That includes jobs for marijuana growers, processors, and sellers or work in adjacent services including legal advice, marketing and security for the nascent industry.

This comes as a Cannabis Marketplace Report, published by Consumer Research Around Cannabis, says approximately 5.3 million of adults over the age of 21 in the Los Angeles Greater Metropolitan Area are cannabis consumers. California’s legal medical marijuana was already 3.8B$ in 2017 according to Ackrell Capital, an investment and research firm.

The next biggest employment centers are Denver and Seattle, major hubs in the longer-established recreational markets of Colorado and Washington.
