Support for legalizing marijuana in the U.S. has reached an all-time high.
The latest Gallup Poll shows 64-percent of Americans believe marijuana should be legalized -- the highest level of support in 50 years.
Even conservative Republicans are seeing the benefits of increased tax revenue seen in Colorado and Washington. Texas this year approved its first marijuana grower for medicinal cannabis oil.
“We went from having it as a medical use, now it's going into full legalization probably within the next few years,” says Steve Monas, founder of ChronicJobs.com.
Marijuana cultivation is fast becoming a major industry.
“Everything from botany to bud tender, retail operators to growers,” says Monas. “There are plenty of classes online where you can see if you can use your current skill set and move it toward a new industry.”
Northern Michigan University is now offering an all-inclusive degree in medicinal plant chemistry.
“You're going to be able to take a class in cultivation or botany, marketing and business and people who are coming out with this type of degree I believe they're saying the minimum salary will be somewhere between $50,000 and $70,000 per year,” says Monas.
