Pennsylvania Marijuana Applications were submitted 3 months ago on March 20. The Pennsylvania Dept. of Health is expected to announce the winners of the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Applications any day. Dispensary staffing needs will be in large demand after the winners are announced as up to 27 Dispensary licenses will be approved in this round of applications, each license can have up to 3 Dispensary locations. With 3-4 Dispensary Agents (also known as Budtenders) needed in each dispensary location, that’s around 250-300 Dispensary Agents that will be hired over the next several months.
HempStaff’s four-hour course is designed to prepare participants for work at a marijuana dispensary so that business owners are getting educated and well-prepared candidates when filling new, entry-level positions. This specific marijuana training course covers regulations in Pennsylvania.
