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.
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.
