Music Legend Dave Mason and Veterans Charity, Work Vessels for Veterans Partner in Promoting Jobs for Veterans in Legal Marijuana

FAIR LAWN, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / November 11, 2014 / AnythingIT/WeedHire (ANYI) today announced that Music Legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason & Work Vessels for Veterans Charity (http://www.wvfv.org) (www.wvfv.org) have selected WeedHIre.com as its platform to promote jobs for Veterans in Legal Cannabis.

"I am a huge supporter of the men and women of the military. Our returning veterans face a struggle transitioning from military to civilian life; add in the lack of jobs in some areas and our current economic state and the problem just gets worse. The legalization of cannabis for both medicinal and recreational use opens up job opportunities across the country. Work Vessels for Vets mission is to get our veterans back into the work world. Weedhire is the avenue in which veterans can find employment into an industry just breaking out of its infancy. It's a perfect fit" said Dave Mason.

"Having personally worked with the Work Vessels for Veterans organization under past programs, we are proud to have WeedHire selected as the platform for Veterans to obtain marijuana jobs in this growing marketplace." Stated David Bernstein, CEO of WeedHire. "Dave Mason represents generations of music and has a legacy that stands alongside some of the greatest musicians. We are honored Mr. Mason has selected our platform to promote legal marijuana jobs."

Mason's latest song is being released on Veterans Day, November 11, 2014 "Thank You" is Rock n Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Mason's musical tribute to the women and men of the United States military and veterans everywhere. A slide show version and free music download links can be found at www.weedhire.com.

WeedHire.com was launched in May 2014 as the premier marijuana jobs site for the legal cannabis industry.

Although WeedHire is the central online portal and social media source for job seekers and providers, it is not involved with the growth, sale, or distribution of marijuana.
