Cannabis Jobs and Revenue Potential for Native Americans


  • Among factors cited by experts identifying longtime tribal joblessness and an economic malaise are underinvestment in tribal areas, a lack of resources, and low educational attainment.
  • Some tribes have turned to gambling to drive economic development, but casino and gaming opportunities are limited and do not have as wide spread an economic impact as most people assume. Most jobs in this area are low paying
  • Cannabis is being considered by tribes as a means to generate economic development and job creation
  • By entering the cannabis market to capture even the smallest market share, Native Americans could reduce their overall unemployment average and generate significant revenues.
