Think you know cannabis better than the Washington state government? You do? Great. You're probably right, and because of that they might like to talk to you.
In an effort to begin constructing laws and regulations around
Washington's Initiative 502 that legalized limited amounts of cannabis
possession and created a state-regulated recreational marijuana
industry, Washington officials are looking for a few knowledgeable
cannabis cultivators, tokers and scientists to help guide the policy.
A job fair of sorts was held on Wednesday in Tacoma, with a state contract-bidding expert on hand to answer questions from potential candidates. The Washington Times reported it was an eclectic crowd of both Washingtonians as well as a number of out-of-state prospects wearing everything from a coat and tie to "flannels" and "ponytails". Included in that list is former High Times grow expert and prolific grow-guide writer, Ed Rosenthal.
While I'm sure plenty of pot enthusiasts will apply, the state is looking for people with knowledge in a much wider field than how to roll a joint. They want someone who knows about cultivation standards, how edibles are made, how various marijuana products are consumed, and how safety and potency testing can be accomplished.
Below is a list of requirements from the Washington State Liquor Control Board website for
consultants in four different areas. Officials say the hope to get one
person who can fill all roles, but if multiple contracts to different
individuals or groups make sense they will be open to that as well.
The deadline for bids is 2 p.m. February 15, and selections will be made by March 20. If you really want to apply, visit the WSLCB website here.
