Marijuana growers usually work in secret, even in legal marijuana states. But then we begin to wonder… is there a way for me to find legal weed jobs?
Yeah, that’s the ticket… a job just like a regular job, except it involves marijuana!
A job that gives me a paycheck and health insurance.
Legal weed jobs in which I don’t have to worry about getting busted.
Now that legal marijuana is a big-money success, especially in Colorado, Oregon, and Washington, many of us who grow marijuana or just love to use marijuana are wondering if we can come out of the underground and grow marijuana in legal weed jobs.
Instead of hiding with our marijuana plants in the basement and selling on the sly, can we have weed jobs growing for a medical or recreational dispensary in Colorado, Oregon, or Washington?
If you’re qualified, the answer is yes, legal weed jobs could be waiting for you to apply for right now.
Here’s a typical ad from a weed jobs website:

Notice that in Colorado, depending on the legal weed jobs you’re going for, you’ll need a state marijuana industry occupational license or med badge.
This costs money, and involves paperwork and a background check.
The bottom line is if you have or can get experience growing marijuana, making medibles, making solvent hashish such as butane honey oil, making bubblehash, dry sift, or live resins, harvesting and trimming marijuana, or talking intelligently about marijuana strains, there are legal weed jobs waiting for you.
Even if you’re “just a stoner,” but you have clerical, accounting, office, bookkeeping and other skills that marijuana businesses need, you could find legal weed jobs.
There are even cannabis training universities where you can acquire marijuana growing knowledge and other skills so you too can get the legal weed jobs of your dreams!
