New Yorker interested in legal marijuana jobs

I'm a New Yorker who is completely willing to move to a new area for work and a change of pace.
With Colorado legalizing marijuana starting January 1st, I find myself interested in working in what will certainly become a lucrative industry. Without specific experience, is that possible?

Here's a snapshot of my work experience: retail/sales, restaurant management, social media, writing, etc. I've also worked at a few start ups.
If I'm interested in finding work -- "budtender", assistant, trimmer, whatever really -- in that new industry, how should I go about it? Beyond how you'd find any job... Some searching makes it sound like volunteering at marijuana advocacy groups would be a good start.
Do you think I'd only be able to find something after moving?
