Get A Job In The Illinois Medical Marijuana Industry

Illinois’ medical marijuana industry has been very slow to launch. Medical marijuana business licenses were supposed to be issued last year, but due to some foot dragging by the outgoing Illinois Governor, the license issuances had to wait until the next Governor took office. 18 cultivation licenses have been awarded, and one of the companies (Ataraxia) is looking to hire people to work at their cultivation facility. Per WSIL TV:

Barb Youngs of Ataraxia says the company initially will hire up to 30 employees to staff a planned 50,000-square-foot facility in Albion. It already has received more than 100 employment inquiries.

The company expects to provide training in Denver for some workers. Its website lists positions including growers, a trim technician and a supervisor of harvest quality. The job fair is scheduled April 1 at Frontier Community College in Fairfield.

The last numbers I heard out of Illinois stated that there were still only 1,600 medical marijuana patients in Illinois. Obviously I expect that number to rise as medical marijuana becomes available, but still, Illinois’ medical marijuana industry has the potential to be very limited given the short list of qualifying conditions for patients to qualify for medical marijuana. Keep this in mind when you are applying for jobs in Illinois’ medical marijuana industry. You can fill out an application to work at Ataraxia at this link here.

    Im surprised they haven’t attempted to legalize coke too. These politicians are fuckin greedy. They only decided they should legalize it once they figured a way to capitalize from it for themselves. They realize that Marijuana is here to stay so they figured why not get a cut in the profits. Those politicians for prohibition of legalization of marijuana are just cynical assholes that want to make themselves feel superior to those that that are actually for it. Either way fuck these politicians #GoGreen
