Sales of legal cannabis in the U.S. were $12.4 billion in 2019.
In California alone, the world’s largest market, sales were $3 billion, which represents nearly a quarter of all legal sales in the U.S. for 2019. As more and more states trend toward legalization, these numbers will continue growing, and very quickly at that.
What does this mean for jobs?
In short, it means that the legal cannabis industry will continue being the biggest jobs creator in the U.S., doubling in size over the past four years and growing at a much faster rate than any other industry.
According to Leafly's 2019 job report, the U.S. legal cannabis industry added 33,700 jobs last year. Although somewhat of a slowdown for industry standards, this represented a 15% increase from the previous year, bringing the total of full-time positions to 243,700.
California laid claim to 16% of the market with a total of 39,804 jobs. Leafly’s jobs report, which was written before the outbreak of the coronavirus, projected double-digit growth for 2020 in both sales and jobs.
So how will the coronavirus impact the industry?
It’s hard to say exactly what the impact will be, but a few things are certain.
So far, the coronavirus has affected the cannabis industry less than nearly every other facet of the economy.
This is because people need weed in times of crisis, and a global pandemic that requires self isolation in mass certainly qualifies as such a time.
Moving forward, given that marijuana entrepreneurs are some of the most innovative and resilient people in the business world, we can say with certainty that the cannabis industry will emerge from this crisis stronger than before.
Now is the time to get in where you fit in!
