Marijuana Industry: Where Millennials Can Succeed

Since many generations are retiring later and later, it’s hard for millennials and recent college grads to break into traditional industries and move up the corporate ladder at a pace that they are satisfied with. Since job openings are scarce, employees are sitting in entry-level positions for longer and longer, unable to move up or stay on a solid career track like their parents and grandparents before them.

In what traditional industry can a 23 year-old become a successful managing editor, a CEO, or a published writer in a few months with few barriers and little opposition from superiors? Marijuana has allowed productive and driven young professionals to prove themselves as big fish in small ponds; it’s much easier to get noticed when you’re the first horse out of the gate.

The legal marijuana industry has created thousands of jobs for those in nearly every industry: public relations, retail, accounting, law, production. It’s the place innovative young people can carve a name for themselves in today’s world. What are your thoughts?
