DENVER (AP) — Job seekers are expected to turn out in droves for a marijuana job fair in Denver.

More than a dozen Colorado marijuana-related companies are joining forces to recruit hundreds of people 21 and older for positions in accounting, technology, advertising and selling the now-legal drug.

The event Thursday is expected to draw about 700 job seekers.

According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/lnck5zp ), use of marijuana is prohibited in line or at the fair.
