Increase in Job Opportunities in Marijuana Industry is Expected to Provide Lucrative Opportunities to the Global Medical Marijuana Market:
Job growth is one of the most powerful indicators of America’s economic health. There are two major types of start-ups in the marijuana industry—existing and pursuing licensing (EPLs) and new and pursuing licensing (NPLs). EPLs are businesses with an existing license to operate in the medical marijuana industry prior to the date of approval of marijuana for recreational activities. EPLs are currently going through the legal process of selling recreational marijuana. NPLs are businesses without an existing license to operate in the medical marijuana industry before the date of approval of recreational marijuana. These companies are also going through the legalization process to sell recreational marijuana. There is an increase in the number of start-ups in the field of medical marijuana in the Americas due to the rapid legalization of marijuana in various states of the US.

According to the special report published by Leafly, in the US, in 2018, the cannabis industry posted job gains of 44%, whereas, in 2017, the job gain rate was 21%. There is an increase in the number of job opportunities in the cannabis industry due to a rise in the number of start-ups in the medical marijuana industry in the Americas. The majority of cannabis consumers in California are yet to undergo a transition from the illicit market to the legal market. Michigan, a state with twice the population of Colorado, is expected to open its first adult-use stores in early 2020. Labor statistics are collected using the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Canada, the US, and Mexico use the NAICS system, which is a collection of nearly 20,000 codes delineating specific job categories. If a job or industry does not have its own NAICS code number, that job does not exist within the statistical universe of labor economists. According to the report by Leafly, many medical marijuana companies have not yet registered with NAICS. Therefore, after the registration of such companies, more job opportunities will be created in North America.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Global Medical Marijuana Market Growth:
The supply chain disruptions and the massive demand for efficient treatments for the therapy of COVID-19 have put the healthcare research industry in a crucial situation globally. Moreover, the medical marijuana market growth declined by a rate of 32% from 2019 to 2020. Due to lockdown and shut down, no movements were taking place in most industries, as well as the import-export business was impacted and changes in guidelines for the supply of the product negatively impacted the market growth. In North Macedonia, construction of Pharmacon's 178,000-square-foot cannabis (marijuana) grow house, slowed due to social distancing guidelines. Additionally, in Barcelona, Cannabis Social Clubs—private, non-profit organizations, where the substance is collectively grown and distributed to registered members, was shut down following the government's declaration of a state of alarm across the country.
