When President Trump was running for office, he ran on a platform that promised to bring jobs back to America; in particular, jobs from the manufacturing sector that had been siphoned off overseas. In light of that, it’s a shame that the Trump administration has since taken a hostile stance towards recreational marijuana. That’s because the growing marijuana industry could create a ton of jobs.

According to data published by New Frontier Data and highlighted by a recent article from High Times, the marijuana industry could wind up creating 300,000 new jobs by the year 2020. That would be more jobs than are expected to be created by the manufacturing sector. It’s also more jobs than are expected to be generated by utilities or the government. These statistics are based on current growth in the marijuana sector, and don’t include states that are likely to legalize marijuana in the near future. They also consider the possibility of a slow down in the growth of the marijuana industry.

Marijuana sales are expected to grow to the tune of $13.3 billion by the year 2020, $11.2 billion of which will be recreational sales. In addition, this financial growth could help support the economy during the next recession. According to Giadha Aguirre De Carcerthe, founder of New Frontier Data, “While we see a potential drop in total number of U.S. jobs created in 2017, as reported by Kiplinger, as well as an overall expected drop in GDP growth, the cannabis industry continues to be a positive contributing factor to growth at a time of potential decline.”

Someone needs to give the Trump administration a reality check. If Trump really wants to rescue the American economy, he needs to back off of the pot issue. Hopefully the rumors that Jeff Sessions is going to respect states rights on this issue will turn out to be true.

    295,000 of the jobs created will go to Illegal Aliens & Mexican drug mules.

    • Not really but the remaining prohibition keeps those guys in business for sure.

        Ever notice that the terminally ignorant persist in conflating the consequences of Prohibition with the consequences of use? As if Reefer Madness were a documentary rather than yellow journalism?

        • Yep, and I wonder if is intentional(troll) or are they really just that gullible and naive.

            Willful ignorance.

      Prohibition already gave them jobs. Ending Prohibition will eliminate those jobs.

  • If Cannabis is allowed to prosper it will be the end of the pharmaceutical companies’ reign and they know it.

      it won’t be the end, but it will put a large dent in them.

      One can hope, but they have other avenues to stay in business. It would kill them on psychoactive drugs and drugs for ptsd for sure and also for the cancer industry since cannabis oils have been shown to help get rid of cancer.

      • Their reign would end but they would still exist.

    300K jobs created, maybe, 100 million lives damaged. For those who don’t remember the past, they are doomed to repeat it Read “Dope Inc.”, the royal family runs the largest drug cartel on the planet. And our politicians, our news media, our schools, and our money.

      The 100 million luves ruined are the poor slobs imprisoned for the heinous crime of not harming anyone while providing a willing customer with a plant.
