  1. Why wouldn't you be able to look at current retail marijuana badge holders? The state has to have those on record. Then add owners, breeders, growers, special law enforcement and goverment departments for pot, testing centers and trimmers. You could get a decently accurate number off that, and your number seems conservative to say the least on marijuana employment.

  2. Don't talk about the difference of pay! Don't tell what a natural gas man makes compared to a pot head! You'll figure it out when many move to WY and take their tax with them. I say, turn off the gas now, do an experiment.
