While opponents argue that legalizing marijuana would hurt the workforce, a new study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) found that the reform actually increased employment opportunities. Researchers at San Diego State University and Bentley University said their study is "the first to explore the impact of recreational marijuana legalization (RML) on labor market outcomes for working-age individuals," and that "overall, we conclude that the legalization of recreational marijuana had at most a modest impact on the economic well-being of working-age workers. economic well-being of workers". Because RML extensively expands the cannabis market with a much larger potential consumer base than medical marijuana (MML), the expansion of cannabis production and cultivation is likely to be much greater. As a result, there is room for greater growth in agricultural and retail employment (possibly along with worker wages) in response to this new legal market."
