The company claims it’s looking for a weed expert for quality assurance of its products.
Cologne-based Cannamedical sells medicinal cannabis to German pharmacies, and wants the new employee to “smell, feel and smoke” the product.
CEO David Henn told Bild: “We are looking for someone who continuously monitors the standards of our growers in the sourcing countries of Australia, Canada, Portugal, Macedonia and Denmark.
“Here in Germany, he should also check the quality of the material delivered.”
Cannabis enthusiasts have flooded the company with applications for the odd position.
But there’s a catch: the lucky hire must already be a cannabis patient with a licence in Germany to smoke weed legally.
Germany’s health minister made headlines last year for proposing cannabis legalisation for “recreational usage”.
Karl Lauterbach has unveiled proposals to decriminalise the possession of up to 30 grams of cannabis and allow the sale of the substance to adults.
It would make Germany the second European Union country to legalise cannabis after Malta.
According to a survey presented by the official, an estimated 4 million adults use cannabis in Germany.
Weed has been decriminalised for personal use in a number of countries, including the Netherlands and Portugal, which decriminalised the use of all drugs in 2001.
In 2019, an American company posted a position paying £3000 per month to smoke their cannabis each day.
American Marijuana said they were looking for someone who “can smoke” but also has “extensive knowledge” about the semi-legal drug.
In their hunt for someone to sample their products, they even claim to have approached celebrity stoners like Snoop Dogg.
Dwight Blake, who is coordinating the search, said everyone he’s told about the opportunity so far has replied, “Count me in!”
He told The Sun Online: “Everyone is going crazy about smoking weed.
“And getting paid to do just that (and a little more) makes it all the more alluring.”
