The state of California is hiring for positions related to the legalization of recreational marijuana.

California voters approved legalizing recreational marijuana in November 2016.

As of January 1, 2018, it will be legal for anyone over the age of 21 to possess, transport and buy up to 28.5 grams of marijuana for recreational use.

In preparation for a newly-regulated cannabis industry, state licensing authorities are looking for people to help with the ongoing regulatory process.

The positions are located throughout the state and require people with computer, science, health or legal backgrounds and skills.

The California Water Resources Control Board is looking for a senior legal analyst based in Sacramento who will manage the agency’s handling of cannabis cultivators who cause damage to the environment. The annual salary for the position runs $60-70,000.

There is also a position available for an associate program analyst who will develop an inspection system for cannabis cultivation in Southern California and keep an eye on trends including crop size, plant variety, and pesticide use. The minimum annual salary for this position based in Riverside County will be $57,000.
