A medical marijuana cultivation center in southeastern Illinois has posted an employment application online and plans to participate in a job fair.
    
Barb Youngs of Ataraxia says the company initially will hire up to 30 employees to staff a planned 50,000-square-foot facility in Albion. It already has received more than 100 employment inquiries.
    
The company expects to provide training in Denver for some workers. Its website lists positions including growers, a trim technician and a supervisor of harvest quality. The job fair is scheduled April 1 at Frontier Community College in Fairfield.
    
Ataraxia is one of the corporations chosen by the state of Illinois to grow medical marijuana under a four-year pilot program. The Illinois Department of Agriculture oversees the cultivation side of the marijuana program.
