SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — The first cannabis career fair was held in downtown Salt Lake on Saturday.

The event, held by “Utah Cannabis United,” comes after Utah awarded medical cannabis pharmacy licenses last month.

Utahns interested in a career in cannabis were able to meet with recruiters from marijuana-based businesses.

The event also featured classes that teach what companies are looking for in employees in the growing industry.

Organizers said they are learning from this first-of-its-kind experience, and plan to hold a second event in the coming months.
