Best Job Of The Future: Marijuana Consultant For The Government

If becoming a drone operator is too dystopian, consider this. In U.S. states which have newly legalized pot, experts on its growth and consumption are needed for public service, NBC News reports:

The job description requests an unlikely mix of skills: five years of regulatory experience, with a law degree preferred, and extensive knowledge of all things marijuana. But that didn’t stop dozens of people from turning out to find out about becoming Washington state’s official marijuana consultant.

As officials figure out how to regulate the state’s newly legal marijuana, they’re hiring an adviser to fill in the gaps: how cannabis is best grown, dried, tested, labeled, packaged, regulated and cooked into brownies.

The board has advertised for consulting services in four categories. The first is “product and industry knowledge” and requires “at least three years of consulting experience relating to the knowledge of the cannabis industry, including  product growth, harvesting, packaging, product infusion and product safety.”

    since at least 80% of those working for Washington State’s gruberment
    they should hire their gruberment leeches from the inside gruberment body

    Why not hire some Dutch people who have already been regulating pot?

    One question: If its a government job, won’t there be mandatory drug testing?

  4. I’m curious as to the experience part of consulting with knowledge of the cannabis industry. The position they are looking for probably hasn’t been around that long.
