Colorado's first marijuana industry job fair to be held in Denver Thursday

DENVER - Colorado's first marijuana industry job fair is being held in Denver Thursday and job seekers are expected to turn out in droves.

"Line already forming outside O.penVape for #marijuana job fair," 7NEWS Reporter Lindsey Sablan tweeted at 9:15 a.m.

Sablan said three of the seven people she talked to are from out of state.

The CannaSearch job fair will feature 15 large marijuana-related companies that are hoping to hire new employees for a range of multiple positions, from "budtender to bookkeeper." Other positions are available in accounting, technology, advertising and selling the drug.

All potential employees must be 21 or older.

The job fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 1058 Delaware St. in Denver.

The event on Thursday is expected to draw about 700 job seekers.

According to our partners at the Denver Post, use of marijuana is prohibited in line or at the fair.
