Opportunities Abound for California Cannabis Jobs

The consulting firm Arcview is estimating there will be roughly 400,000 cannabis related jobs in the U.S. by 2021. California cannabis jobs will account for about 146,000 of those employment opportunities. Considering the U.S. employment rate overall has been plummeting, we can use all the help that we can get.

The U.S. Employment Rate Falling

Many of the cannajobs produced will be trimming jobs in California. Dispensary jobs in San Diego are likely a good place for people to start looking since the southern California city was one of the first cities to really embrace the legalization of cannabis.

The estimate by consulting firm Arcview includes direct purchases by consumers of $20.8 billion and indirect revenue for growers and various subcontractors as well as money spent with businesses not affiliated with the sector, such as supermarkets.

The projection would represent a rise of 150 percent on the $16 billion revenue recorded in 2017, according to the study, released the day after recreational use of marijuana became legal in California.

Arcview and its partner in the research, BDS Analytics, expect $4 billion in taxes to be generated within three years.

The new regime will lead to the creation of nearly 100,000 cannabis industry jobs in California by 2021, about a third of the nationwide figure and 146,000 jobs overall when indirect effects are considered.

Customers and operators in California have complained however about the punitive sales taxes to be applied to cannabis and its derivative products, which can hit 35 percent when state, county and municipal levies are taken into account.

California, the most populous US state, became the largest legal market for marijuana in the world on Monday, and public reaction to the law change has been enthusiastic, with long lines and stock shortages reported at clinics already licensed and open.

Many people may be wondering how much do dispensary jobs pay. However, with the current U.S. employment rate at the lowest levels since before 2008, finding any kind of work is a challenge. Have you considered a career in the California cannabis industry?
