Need a job? Minnesota officials searching for medical pot chief


Want to run Minnesota’s medical marijuana program? Sounds like it’d be an interesting gig, right? It also pays handsomely, with a salary in the range of $73,811 to $105,862. But before you start daydreaming about how many bags of Cheetos you could buy with that type of income, it should be noted that the job would be more about administration and analysis than cannabis, of course.
“This position will ensure proper direction and oversight is provided within a new division, the Office of Medical Cannabis (OMC), created within the Executive Office (EO) of the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH),” the job post notes. “The Director of the OMC will create and oversee this new program and will report directly to the Assistant Commissioner for Strategic Initiatives.”
Job responsibilities include strategic planning, budgeting, hiring, reviewing research and literature related to the field, and sampling the marijuana extracts to make sure they’re up to par. Okay, we’re just kidding about that last one. Check out more over at the Minneapolis City Pages.
