A marijuana company is offering potheads the job of a lifetime, offering a lucky someone the opportunity to smoke weed every day, and pay them up to £28,000 ($36,000) a year for the privilege.
For some, it’ll sound too good to be true: can you really test a wide range of cannabis products from the comfort of your own home, and get paid up to $3,000 a month for it?
Turns out ‘one of the most trusted medical marijuana resources online’, American Marijuana’s job is 100% real and it’s important too.
Dwight Blake, 58, of Westbury, New York, who is coordinating the search said everyone he’s told about the opportunity so far has replied, “Count me in!”
He told The Sun online: “Everyone is going crazy about smoking weed. And getting paid to do just that (and a little more) makes it all the more alluring.”
However, don’t expect to get the gig just because you love lighting up. The website explains that you shouldn’t expect to be hired ‘just because you can smoke because we’re looking for a guy who also has extensive knowledge of marijuana to educate our readers’.
The crux of the job is this: they’re looking for someone to review a wide variety of cannabis products – from vapes, weed strains, edibles to CBD oils – to give the site’s readers ‘honest and reliable insights’.
The job advert reads: “This job is 100 percent for real and it’s an important job that includes more than just getting paid to smoke weed. If you think that’s the entire scope of the job, then this might not be for you.
We’re looking for someone to review a wide variety of cannabis products to give our readers an honest and reliable insights on various cannabis products. And they have to live in a state in America or Canada where medical marijuana is legal.
If you think you got the guts to smoke weed every day and get paid doing it, you might just be the guy we need.
But DO NOT expect us to hire you just because you can smoke because we’re looking for a guy who also has extensive knowledge of marijuana to educate our readers.”
Maybe a degree in cannabis will help.
Naturally, there are a few conditions. You have to be fit, healthy, over the age of 18 and live in a state in America or Canada where medical marijuana is legal.
“Lastly, the applicant needs to be physically fit and healthy in general to carry out cannabis product reviews regularly,” the advert continues.
The $3,000 payment is discretionary based on experience and capability, according to the application’s terms and conditions.
