Unions Plan to Back Marijuana Workers

California unions are hoping to organize the 100,000 expected workers that will enter the cannabis workforce this year. On January 1, legal sale of recreational marijuana in licensed shops to anyone 21 and older began. The United Farm Workers, Teamsters, and United Food and Commercial Workers all hope to gain members through what is already a $22 billion industry in the state that has the highest minimum wage and largest number of union workers.
