Polis: Colorado Continues to be Epicenter of CannabisPosted by On

Slang Worldwide Chooses Colorado for Expansion

Governor Polis and Colorado’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade announced today that Slang Worldwide, a cannabis consumer-packaged-goods company has selected Colorado for its expanded production.  

“Colorado continues to be the epicenter of the growing cannabis industry, so we’re excited by the company’s smart decision to relocate and create jobs in our beautiful state,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Colorado’s cannabis industry offers strong growth potential and this move speaks volumes about our state’s cannabis industry and community as a whole.”

“We applaud Governor Polis and the Office of Economic Development and International Trade for once again being leaders in cannabis policy,” said Chris Driessen, President and CEO of Slang Worldwide. “Colorado was already a core market for us, so with these incentives from the state it only made sense for us to double down on our commitment to the place that so many of us, including myself, call home.” 

The project will create 43 new jobs with an average annual wage of $75,000. These new jobs are expected to include lab technician, project management and other production-related positions. Slang currently employs 75 people in their existing offices in Denver, which serves as their U.S. Headquarters and Boulder which will now be expanded.
