In the News (from Reuters): “In Colorado- the state’s first marijuana industry job fair. There were lines before the doors even opened. Fifteen marijuana-related companies are looking to fill jobs ranging from accounting to actually growing the plant.
“A job hunter says: ‘It would be nice to be a budtender, but whatever they want to throw at me, and get my foot in the door.’ The fair brought in job hunters from many different fields. …
“Luke Ramirez, marijuana dispensary owner, saying: ‘Our sales have increased 300%. Our traffic through our stores has increased by the same number. That’s why we’re here today. We need to hire more folks to help out with that traffic added revenues.” While the requirements vary from job to job, industry recruiters say all applicants must be at least 21-years-old.’”
My Comment: But how much will we have to spend on the undesirable consequences of drug use: ruined health, increased crime, broken families, etc.?
