Professional motorcycle racer Johnny Rock Page and marijuana industry media company Hemp American Media Group have together made history via a sponsorship deal that makes for the first time a professional racer has ever been sponsored by a marijuana company. The sponsorship is for Page’s 2016 MotoAmerica Superbike season.

"This deal conveys the public’s improving perception and acceptance of marijuana," said Colby Ayres, co-founder and marketing director of Hemp American Media Group. "We are ecstatic that Johnny Rock Page and MotoAmerica are progressive in their views towards marijuana," Ayres said.

"Although I no longer use marijuana, I truly believe that it can help cancer patients and those who need it for other medicinal purposes," Page said.

MotoAmerica's Superbike racing series is the IndyCar of motorcycle racing. Each motorcycle is completely custom, creating the fastest motorcycle racing in the world.

The MotoAmerica Superbike season begins in April in Austin, Texas, at the Circuit of The Americas race track where Page will seek a win in the season opener. The season’s nine races throughout the continental U.S. will be televised on the beIN SPORTS TV Network.

U.S.: 420careers.com Reports Marijuana Industry Job Openings At Historic High

420Careers.com

420careers.com, a marijuana industry job listing site, on Monday reported that the swiftly developing cannabis industry is generating an extraordinary and historic amount of jobs throughout the United States and Canada.

“The marijuana industry is producing more new jobs than many other industries in the United States,” said Colby Ayres, director of marketing at 420careers.com. "Each state that passes a medical or recreational marijuana law usually generates hundreds, if not thousands, of new jobs.

"Colorado currently has over 10,000 jobs associated with the marijuana industry and Washington state is quickly creating hordes of new jobs since legalizing marijuana in July," Ayres said.

Twenty-two states permit medical marijuana and two states (Colorado and Washington) permit recreational marijuana for adult use. Nearly a dozen other states have medical marijuana legislation initiatives and an estimated five states will vote to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use by 2016.

It has been predicted that over a dozen more states are likely to legalize recreational marijuana for adult use by 2018, which would potentially grow upwards of a $10 billion industry in the United States.

Some of more popular marijuana jobs currently offered on 420careers.com are: budtenders (dispensary patient consultants), cultivation experts, dispensary managers, writers, sales positions, delivery drivers, security staff, inventory staff, and various administrative and business development positions.
