The Oxford Dictionary has named “vape” 2014’s Word of the Year.

Oxford defines the verb as “to inhale and exhale the vapour produced by an electronic cigarette or similar device,” reports Lori Grisham at USA Today. It was added to the dictionary in August.

Vape can also be used as a noun for the e-cig, and for the act of inhaling itself, according to Oxford.

“You are 30 times more likely to come across the word vape that you were two years ago, and usage has more than doubled in the past year,” Oxford said of the decision.

Runners-up for Word of the Year included “budtender,” a person whose job it is to serve customers in a cannabis dispensary or shop.

Ganjapreneur, a website dedicated to cannabis business news and professional content, has announced the addition of a cannabis industry job listings section to its website. The job listings will be generated primarily via third-party platforms where cannabis growers, retailers, and ancillary businesses post their employment openings.

Ganjapreneur's stated goal is to provide one location for aspiring ganjapreneurs to see all of the industry job postings each day.

Ganjapreneur hopes to compile a comprehensive overview of the legal marijuana job market. With positions ranging from Budtender to Delivery Driver, the professional opportunities in the burgeoning cannabis industry are unique and can often be fiercely competitive.

By publishing in-depth content, a weekly newsletter, and extensive interviews with prominent marijuana professionals, Ganjapreneur says its primary goal is to keep its readers up to date on the latest developments and opportunities related to the cannabis industry.

Last week, Ganjapreneur announced the first segment of an interview with Matt Brown, founder of Denver-based marijuana tourism company My 420 Tours. The interview was conducted via audio, and a transcription is available for reading on the Ganjapreneur website.
