While businesses continue to shutter and unemployment to grow amid coronavirus-related restrictions, activity in and around New Mexico’s growing medical cannabis industry seems to be ramping up.
New Mexico’s largest chain of medical cannabis dispensaries has announced its intention to dramatically scale up its operations with a new hiring push amid increased demand. Meanwhile, interest from would-be industry workers is also on the rise.
Duke Rodriguez, president and CEO of Ultra Health, said the company plans to add 11 new locations by the end of the year. Ultra Health is also looking to hire 50 to 100 new employees per month in the near future as new dispensaries open, ultimately planning to bring on 1,000 new workers.
