This job pays $50 an hour to smoke weed, but you have to be an obnoxious stoner

This job pays $50 an hour to smoke weed, but you have to be an obnoxious stonerWho knew that being That Annoying Guy at parties could pay off? If you have a tendency to interrupt conversations with "Well, actually," question the percentage of THC when offered a hit of a vape, or snottily discuss strains when everyone else is just trying to chill out, then this gig might be perfect for you! SEE ALSO: Canada just legalized weed, and it's looking better every day With Canada's recent legalization of recreational marijuana, cannabis company A Higher Level Of Thought (AHLOT) is scouting "expert-level connoisseurs" for its Cannabis Curation Committee. Input and notes from connoisseurs will be used to curate a "sample pack" of weed — basically a prepackaged flight of premium strains for customers to try out at home.  The position pays $50 per hour for a maximum 12 hours a month to report on the "visual, factory, and tactile examination of samples." Plus, your bud and related expenses are covered. A connoisseur will also contribute to social media posts and appear in video segments.  But you can't just enjoy smoking weed, you have to be pretty knowledgable to land this job.  Being a member of the Cannabis Curation Committee requires more than just knowing how to roll a joint or being able to differentiate between an indica or a sativa. To apply, curators must fill out a detailed questionnaire that asks what a trichome is, tests the applicant on the "ideal temperature to vaporize and evaluate terpenoid profile," and requires a personal statement. Oh, and you have to live in Canada. If you're bursting with weed-themed fun facts and your friends need a break from you, apply to be a curator! Study up — the deadline is Oct. 17.  WATCH: This device can charge your phone with wind or water
