ABOUT THC STAFFING GROUP
THC Staffing Group is an organization dedicated to closing the gap between America’s rapidly growing cannabis industry and diverse, qualified employment candidates. The organization was founded by best friends and seasoned activists, Shaleen Title and Danielle Schumacher, when they combined their dedication to smart drug policy with their desire to foster the development of a fair, robust and legal cannabis industry.
After meeting as roommates, Shaleen & Danielle realized they shared a similar vision of ending the drug war and legalizing cannabis. They co-founded the University of Illinois chapter of Students for Sensible Drug Policy before going on to serve as activists in the industry. Today, the founders of THC Staffing Group have over 30 combined years of experience as activists, consultants, and recruiters for the legal cannabis movement and industry.
After her appointment to the Massachusetts newly formed Cannabis Control Commission, Shaleen Title left THC Staffing Group in 2017. Danielle continues as President & CEO and will continue THC Staffing Group’s mission of connecting diverse cross-sections of America’s population with employment opportunities in the industry.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
With our long-standing, excellent reputations in the cannabis industry and movement, we offer a unique and necessary service to employers. Through our access to a deep pool of qualified and highly diverse candidates, we maintain a professional commitment to the continued successful growth of the American cannabis industry.
While there are thousands of general, cross-industry recruitment companies, THC Staffing Group focuses solely on the cannabis industry, including dispensaries, cultivation centers, ancillary businesses or nonprofit organizations focused on drug policy.
During their 15+ years working in this field, we have both mentored numerous people and helped match them with companies that were looking to hire. As the cannabis industry has matured, we have witnessed the growing need for this type of service.
