5 of the Top Paying Jobs in the Cannabis Sector

The marijuana industry is no joke. In the United States alone, the industry has over 220,000 full-time employees, and many more part-time employees. What makes this particularly eye-opening is that just eight years ago there was not a single state in the U.S. where marijuana was legal for recreational purposes – now it’s legal in 11, while being legal in over 30 for medical purposes.

However, not all of these jobs are created equally. Some are modest-paying jobs that require little to no experience or educational history (not that they don’t require skill, but many allow on-the-job learning), such as budtender or trimmer. However, there is also a plethora of high-paying marijuana-related jobs, ranging from marijuana attorney to lab technician.

With that in mind, in this article we will look at five of the top paying jobs in the legal marijuana industry
