Toronto company offers cash to ‘cannabis connoisseurs’ to smoke marijuana

Getting paid to smoke pot is no longer a toker’s daydream. A cannabis firm is looking to hire five pot aficionados from across the country to sample the company’s wares and get paid to do it. Toronto-based company AHLOT is offering up to $1,000 a month to five “cannabis connoisseurs” to sample various strains of marijuana.

With legalization scheduled for Oct. 17, the bud brain trust will form the company’s officially titled Cannabis Curation Committee, reporting back on characteristics and quality. The canna-committee will help determine what pot products go into its sample pack, which will comprise several strains from various licensed producers, says the company, which is starting recruitment this week.

Colorado could learn something from San Francisco's marijuana lounges

Denver may be a leader in regulating recreational cannabis sales, but it's hard to say the same about recreational cannabis consumption.
