A new Colorado cannabis facility will have the ability to produce useable marijuana 24 hours a day 7 days a week and that means lots of full-time jobs.

The new production facility is being built in Pueblo, where Colorado's first ever marijuana scholarships were recently awarded. According to KKTV, the plant broke ground this week and is expected to be entirely finished in two years.

Once fully operational, the new cannabis-grow facility will produce 60,000-70,000 pounds of marijuana product per year and provide 180 full-time jobs.

Marijuana has already become big business in Colorado, and this is further evidence that it's only getting bigger. The competition for pot dollars is gradually getting stiffer as more and more states take on legalized recreational marijuana and little by little fewer people are needing to come to Colorado to get high.

If you are looking for a job in the next couple of years and don't mind living in one of the more crime-ridden communities in the state, this might just be the thing for you.
