Marijuana – latest news, breaking stories and comment
San Francisco — David Dancer is a 48-year-old advertising Executive who’s worked on big brands like Charles Schwab and Teleflora marijuana news. A year ago, he got a call from a recruiter for another type of company: Medema cannabis retailer that’s been called”the Apple Store of weed.” The launching has been for a chief marketing officer. He chose it.
One of Mr. Dancer’s first projects was a slick two-minute It finishes with a suburban couple coming home with a bright red bag of lawfully bought pot, symbolizing”the new normal” — a finish which, such as their livelihood spin, seemed unlikely maybe not long past.
“It can and should be a part of anyone’s everyday life,” Mr. Dancer said in a recent interview, sounding very much like a man who was hired to do promotion.
Although cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, 33 States currently allow its sale at least for health purposes. And as new markets available and funding proceeds flooding into, the cannabis industry is now, by some measures, one of the country’s fastest-growing job businesses.

But since the industry grows, there’s also become a robust Demand for better-paid places like chemists, applications engineers, physicians, and nurses that check patients about using cannabis for stress and other health conditions.
“The early signs are that this will proliferate,” Ms. Pollak said.
