Now for some of the biggest news of the year, as of January 1, Colorado has implemented the legalization of Marijuana sales. That's right; and just not for Medical Marijuana! Grow it, sell it, smoke it and eat it! It's all legal now and Washington state will institute a similar law this summer. As a whole the country is now excepting Marijuana in all it's forms and purposes from coast to coast. Marijuana production in the US is probably the highest quality in the world due to years of high breed cross pollination and hydroponic farming.
As a new industry, the growth potential for Cannabis is tremendous. Farming, sales and taxation of this now legal agribusiness will be expected to reach into the billions and when it's full potential is reached - well who knows! But as always; being under the influence of a pot high will still be governed by the same laws in place now. The map below illustrates Marijuana's legal use in the United States.
