Weed business growth
The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not include data on cannabis-related jobs because it is illegal at a federal level. This means we don't have the benefit of specific data. Within this article is a link to a report meant to help fill that gap.
The report, published last month, found that there are now more than 211,000 people employed in the cannabis industry, with 64,000 of those jobs added in 2018. That doesn't include indirect and ancillary jobs, nor induced jobs: when those are included, the total goes up to 296,000.
