The medical marijuana industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, and it seems that there is no limit to how much it can grow. For startup entrepreneurs that are looking for a growth industry that offers plenty of lucrative opportunities, medical marijuana is definitely worth looking into.
However, not everyone who is looking for a business opportunity is actually eager to get involved in dealing with marijuana, legal or otherwise. There are still risks involved in the various aspects of the industry, and there are likely to be “growing pains” as the industry grows out of its infancy. The good news is that there are many other areas of the medical marijuana industry in which startup entrepreneurs can become involved, and many of them entail far less risks. In fact, the many opportunities to work in areas such as education, advertising, and operations means that there is no need for a person to directly handle marijuana unless he really wants to. Here are a few key areas in the medical marijuana industry that may offer potentially lucrative business opportunities.
