Description

We are in the mid-planning stages of a marijuana museum in Denver Colorado (The Colorado Museum of Cannabis and Hemp History). As you may have heard, Colorado legalized possession of small amounts of marijuana in January 2013 and, as of January 2014, now has licensed legal "pot stores" where any adult can purchase cannabis for recreational use. The Museum needs an intern research assistant to help search out any needed information/ historical items to help complete the museum's proposed exhibits.
This museum will be an exciting tourist attraction to Colorado for all cannabis users, and an entertaining new educational experience for non-cannabis users also.
We believe in informing the public of the benefits/ uses of cannabis and hemp, as well as the legal statistics and current changing marijuana policies in theses United States. We feel that the best way to do this, is to open this new Museum to the public.
If you are truly interested in participating in this unique adventure with us, please apply for this internship!
This will be the first museum of it's type in the United states. If the statistics hold true, when it is open, 10's of thousands of people will be expected to visit this museum yearly.
