With more and more states legalizing marijuana it seems clear that more Americans now wish an end to the War on Drugs, at least as far as cannabis is concerned. Since Federal laws supersedes state laws thanks to article VI of the Constitution, marijuana is still technically illegal even in states where it is legal at the state level.
Regardless, even where it is completely illegal, fewer law enforcement agencies are making the prosecution of cannabis-related offenses a priority, leading to marijuana-related businesses operating in risky legal twilight zones.
Why take the risks? The risks certainly aren’t what they were even just 10 years ago, and cannabis cultivation is a huge business. How big? Check out the infographics and their sources below.
