GRAY, Maine (WMTW) — Three Maine organizations teamed up to host a hiring fair for one of the state’s fastest-growing industries.
The Maine Growers Alliance, the Maine Cannabis Coalition and the Women in Cannabis Connection hosted the first-ever Maine Cannabis Industry Job Fair in Gray on Sunday.
Heather Dadiago is the owner of Mind Body & Soul Support, a premium cannabis delivery company. She says she’s one of many cannabis business owners who want to scale up their operations to meet the skyrocketing demand.
“I think that’s a big issue we all run into is keeping people — keeping up with the demand that you need for workers,” Dadiago said.
In addition to the potential for a job, there was also live music and a chicken wing eating contest.
