Job Description

Dear oDeskers,

I hope that you are well and staying as cool as possible this summer. We have an opportunity for you to perform research in one of the most exciting industries in America today – the Marijuana Industry. Yes, as you may be aware the cannabis industry has been legalized for recreational use in two US states and is used for medicinal purposes in 16 other states.

We need to scrape (crawl) data from the dispensary website Weed Maps (a.k.a. https://legalmarijuanadispensary.com). You will need to create excel spreadsheet using information provided on the website. It can be done using your script or we can also discuss if you want to do this manually. Depending on the output, we also may decide to scrape other similar sites.

For example, we want to search for all dispensaries in the United States listed on the website. The output would be: Region, Dispensary Name, Street Address, City, State, Zip Code, Website, Contact Email, Weed Maps posting link, & Phone Number. Once again, the desired output would be in an excel file please.

Let me know your cost and timeline. When submitting your quote, please use the keyword “justice” in the text, so that I can see that you read the whole project specs. Applying w/o doing so will automatically disqualify you.
