Even though smokable medical Marijuana was just recently passed in Florida, Cannabis is already creating many jobs in our state.

According to Forbes, the Marijuana industry added 64,000 jobs last year and is expected to create another 20,000 this year in just California and Florida.

In 2018, Florida added more than 9,000 Cannabis related jobs the most of any state.

This is accredited to the jump in medical Marijuana patients in our state, which increased by 100,000 people in just one year.
