From what we can tell, 2020 is looking to be one big year. We’re talking everything from self-driving cars, huge progress in renewable energy, new NASA missions to Mars, and even Kanye West running for president (#yikes). For those of us embarking upon the budding world of cannabis, we can expect some big things as well. According to a New Frontier report outlined by Forbes, jobs in the legal cannabis industry are on track to outpace those in the manufacturing, utilities, and government sectors, paving the way for 250,000 jobs by the end of the decade.
Naturally, this news has got us “ganjapreneurs” pretty freakin’ pumped. So pumped, in fact, we decided to get a little “canna-spired” and brainstorm on what some of these future jobs might entail. Here are a few of our favorites:
