Pot Puts Chemists in High Demand

Posted May 14, 2015 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Legalization of marijuana use, both for medical and recreational purposes, is creating high demand for chemists. According to one industry consultant at the American Chemical Society's spring conference - held in Denver, CO, where the legal marijuana industry is booming - more chemists are needed to provide the burgeoning industry safer and better cannabis-based products. These products include oils, extracts, and edibles. Demand for chemists is expected to continue to surge as other states move to legalize pot.

Chemists?

Give me an empty room, aluminum foil, some grow lights and water.

We don't need no stinking chemists.

I am sure they do not need a chemist, but I assure you I showered up this morning.

I think the chemists are for making the MJ extract for cookies, brownies, and anything else that keeps the "munchies" going.

Then there are all the needed new forensic lab technician chemists to test the illegal drugs transported out of Colorado. Buffalo stay home on the range, or be buried on the lone prairie (under the jail-house). By the way, mice really like MJ seed.
