Marijuana workers get priority for COVID-19 vaccine before teachers in California's rollout

"Cannabis industry employees are included in Phase 1a for medicinal cannabis," reads a notice from the California Department of Public Health issued Saturday. Growers, producers and others involved in the distribution process will be included in Phase 1b — where food and agricultural workers are currently placed.

But some essential workers, namely teachers, are expressing concern over the prioritization of cannabis dispensers — especially as the debate to reopen schools rages on in the state. Teachers are currently in Phase 1b of coronavirus vaccine distribution.
