A recent report from Vangst stated that in the next five years 25,000 cannabis jobs will be created in Arizona and 40,000 New Jersey.
“There are so many people who are extremely talented that have experienced job loss in the past year,” Kara Bradford of Viridian Staffing told Mjbizdaily. “We may not see a chance like this again for another 10 years to be able to get that talent over into the cannabis industry.”
Vangst also reported that the number of cannabis industry jobs has increased from approximately 120,000 in 2017 to 321,000 in Q1 2021.
“Cannabis jobs are expanding super fast. In the past three or four years, we’ve seen absolute expansion, 30% year-over-year growth in jobs being created,” said Liesl Bernard, CEO of CannabizTeam.
