A cannabis-related job boom in the United States is not showing up in government employment data, leaving American workers in the dark about high wages and job opportunities in the marijuana industry, experts say.

Fueled in part by CBD product sales and Canada's recent legalization of marijuana, the world's cannabis market could notch $15 billion this year.

Most have no brand relevancy or purpose and are woefully inept at creating brand experience.

Across the country, the cannabis industry is weighing whether to join forces with the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, now the most influential union in cannabis, which reps more than 10,000 marijuana workers in 14 states.

Shifting cannabis laws present new opportunities for food and beverage markets.

It’s a pretty extraordinary milestone, and an indicator of just how financially strong the legal marijuana market has become.
