Los Angeles, CA, November 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The unemployed in California are going back to school—but not to the type of school you would expect. As the November issue of The 420 Times reports, increasing numbers of people are enrolling in medical marijuana training programs with hopes of finding employment in the emerging industry.
The story, entitled “Back to School: Medical Marijuana Training Programs,” is planned for release on Friday, November 20, 2009.
Brian Lancer, editor of the magazine, remarked, “We thought it was interesting that people were starting training programs for medical marijuana. That was great. But what we found even more interesting was the people who attended these programs — from realtors to lawyers to house-husbands — were looking for a new start in this growing field.”
The article stands a true sign of the times: not only does it point to the shifting attitudes towards marijuana, but it also points to the lingering economic recession that has haunted the American economy.
As Lancer noted, the medical marijuana industry has been an unexpected hero in rough economic times. He said, “The medical marijuana industry has turned out to be one of the bright spots in what has turned out to be a dull period in our economy’s history. Perhaps it’s just a preview of the economic boost that the complete legalization of marijuana could produce.”
