A little over six months ago, I moved to Colorado from Austin, Texas to become a part of the growing marijuana industry, and it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Are you thinking about moving out here for marijuana? Here’s why you should do that.
It’s a known fact that there are many medical benefits to marijuana. While many states now have legal medical marijuana, Colorado is a stable in the medical marijuana industry. Medical marijuana is great for treating pain, seizures, depression, and insomnia, among other things. For more on this, check out my blog post about why marijuana is better than opioids.
Careers in the Marijuana Industry
When marijuana became legal in Colorado, over 10,000 jobs were created. It’s a fairly simple process to get involved in the marijuana industry. Many of these jobs can pay up to $50,000 per year. Business is booming, and the economy is thriving!
Tax Revenue in Colorado
Due to medical marijuana, Colorado is doing extremely well. In 2015, the sales income of marijuana in Colorado nearly reached $1 billion. This increase in tax revenue means a lot of social improvements like better schools, which is good for everyone.
Colorado is the best place to live in America, I think. The weather is awesome, it’s beautiful, and the people are progressive. So if you’re thinking about coming out here, all I can say is you definitely should.
