U.S. marijuana jobs set to outpace manufacturing

DENVER - The White House hinted, last week, that it may crack down on states that have legalized recreational marijuana.

Marijuana industry experts hope a new jobs prediction report might take the target off of the legal pot business.

According to a report from Frontier Data, marijuana-related jobs are set to outpace manufacturing jobs in the United States by 2020.

The report estimates over the next three years, legalized marijuana will create 300,000 jobs.

Colorado was the first state to legalize recreational marijuana in the United States, and the booming business there has created 20,000 jobs as well as providing a boost to ancillary businesses.
