How many marijuana jobs are there in the U.S.? The answer may surprise you
According to a new report, nearly 300 cannabis jobs are created daily.
It's difficult to calculate just how fast the cannabis industry has grown in recent years. But one way to determine the size is the number of jobs created.
That number reached 428,000 in January 2022, making the marijuana industry one of the fastest-growing employers in the country, according to data reported by The Washington Post.
Another way to determine cannabis's impact on the economy is to look at tax dollars from cannabis sales. In fact, many consider this the most accurate measure.
That number totaled $11 billion for states and local municipalities between 2014 and 2021.
