A marijuana review site is looking to fill a job position that’s a stoner’s dream come true.
AmericanMarijuana.org is currently accepting applications for a Cannabis Product Reviewer who can make up to $36,000 a year to test out various cannabis products and review them for the site.
A post announcing the position promises that one lucky applicant will receive monthly shipments of product that they’ll test out, write about, and post videos about online.

‘If you think you got the guts to smoke weed every day … and get paid doing it, you might just be the guy we need,’ the job posting reads.
However, they insist that the job should be taken seriously and isn’t for the lazy.
‘This job is 100% for real and it’s an important job that includes more than just getting paid to smoke weed,’ the post goes on, adding that they expect their reviewer to have ‘extensive knowledge of marijuana to educate our readers’.
The single reviewer selected will be paid up to $3,000 monthly or $36,000 annually, and will receive shipments of a ‘variety of cannabis products’ like weed strains, vapes, edibles, and CBD oils every month.
In addition to posting reviews on a blog, they’ll record unboxing and explainer videos.
Legalizing it? The job posting comes just as the House Judiciary Committee approved a bill on Wednesday that would legalize marijuana on the federal level
For a shot at the dream gig, applicants must be at least 18 and live in places where cannabis is legal in the US and Canada.
The application includes much of the usual information, as well as a headshot or short video, social media account links, and a list of ‘at least 6 street names, slang terms, or nicknames of marijuana (so we know you’re taking this seriously!).’
The job posting comes just as the House Judiciary Committee approved a bill on Wednesday that would legalize marijuana on the federal level.
The bill, which passed 24 to 10, will next move onto a vote in the full House of Representatives, and then to the Senate.
If passed, it would remove marijuana from Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act, let states enact their own policies on the drug, and put a five per cent tax on cannabis products.
It would also incentive states to clear the criminal records of those with past low-level marijuana offenses.
