Florida is looking to hire a director of cannabis.
And, the state is willing to pay up to $120,000 a year — at least according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
The newspaper says Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried is creating the job, which will be geared toward developing the state’s hemp industry and implementing rules on edible medical marijuana. Fried was previously a lobbyist for the medical marijuana industry.
In case you’re worried about a drug test, don’t sweat it. Fried’s spokesperson, Franco Ripple, told the paper the state won’t require its new cannabis director to submit a drug test to get the job.
As of last week, eleven people had already applied, according to Florida Politics
