The goal of the Oregon Cannabis Jobs Report is simple: To establish a foundation for future research on how many jobs are being created within the cannabis industry to date. 

As new Cannabis economies come online across the United States and around the world, it is imperative that we track the growth of this industry as it creates jobs and economic opportunities for individuals, communities, and businesses alike. 


As we march into the 2016 election, everyone is talking about jobs. We believe it is important that the cannabis industry start to inform the general public and those running for elected office on exactly how many jobs are being created within the Oregon retail cannabis sector today. This data is the first of its kind in the nation. Our researchers took painstaking care to ensure that our methodology will not only withstand scientific rigor, but will also establish a legitimate baseline for further research into other sectors of the cannabis market.
