Marijuana Industry Will Create More Jobs Than Manufacturing by 2020

According to a recent article in Forbes, the legal marijuana industry will create over a quarter of a million jobs by 2020. At Have a Heart we’re totally excited about the future of the industry. In fact, we’re hiring! Have a Heart is opening a number of stores in Washington State over the next few months, and we’re looking for motivated, talented employees to help us serve our customers and our team. If you’re knowledgeable about cannabis, from strains to edibles, dabbing supplies, vape cartridges and topicals – we want to talk to you.

From Forbes:

“These numbers confirm that cannabis is a major economic driver and job-creation engine for the U.S. economy,” said Giadha Aguirre De Carcer, Founder and CEO of New Frontier Data. “While we see a potential drop in total number of U.S. jobs created in 2017, as reported by Kiplinger, as well as an overall expected drop in GDP growth, the cannabis industry continues to be a positive contributing factor to growth at a time of potential decline. We expect the cannabis industry’s growth to be slowed down to some degree in the next three to five years, however with projected total market sales to exceed $24 billion by 2025, and the possibility of almost 300,000 jobs by 2020, it remains a positive economic force in the U.S.”
