Attention Stoners! The State of Washington is Looking for a Weed Expert
Did your parents ever scold you for being a perpetual pothead? Did they ever ask you, “How are you ever going to get a job smoking so much pot?” Now you’ve got a chance to make them eat their words until Hostess becomes financially stable enough to reopen its munchie taste test trials.

Now that Washington has legalized marijuana, the state is looking for a “Commander-in-Chiba” of sorts to consult the state’s Liquor Control Board with its implementation, according to the Associated Press.
The state board isn’t just looking for any stoner to fill the job’s mighty big Birkenstocks. They need someone who can help them learn the best growing and packaging methods for cannabis as the state navigates the legal pitfalls of its legalization. The best part is that they are even willing to consider candidates with a felony on their records. Of course, since the choice will be made by political appointments, that really shouldn’t be a big stretch for them.
The recruitment session for the job attracted what very may well be the longest, weirdest line of job candidates since the last time High Times Magazine needed a copy editor. The AP reported that the line was full of job applicants wearing smart business suits and hemp necklaces. We’re sure some of them thought it was some kind of special line for a really kickin’ hot dog stand.
