With last week's announcement that legal marijuana will be on the way starting in October, there’s a bit of a crunch going on to get the whole thing up and running.

In Ontario, the current plan is to have government run stores much like the LCBO that will sell the product. These stores need employees by the date of legalization so if you’re looking for a job right now you’re in luck.

The stores are specifically looking for product specialists and store managers across the province prioritizing candidates who are 19-years-old, high school graduates, have previous retail experience and a "deep understanding of the commitment to social responsibility." 

Part-time positions are also available, with a minimum of 16 hours a week, or full-time with a max of 44 hours a week. Product specialists will be paid minimum wage.

Accounting firm Deloitte estimates that Canadians will spend up to $4.34 billion on marijuana with some companies estimating new hires of 600 or more. Alison McMahon a staffing recruiter for Cannabis At Work told CBC News that pay for cannabis cultivation has increased by 14% compared to 2017.
