Tonight CNBC is (re)airing an amazing show called “Marijuana Inc.: Inside America’s Pot Industry.” CNBC has aired the special a couple times now, but if you’ve missed it, or haven’t heard of it yet, you should check it out. It’s an interesting look into what CNBC calls a “thriving industry…raking in what’s estimated to be tens of billions of dollars nationwide.”
I lived in California for several years and had no idea that people were growing it in their back yards in the Northern Part of the state, with little, if any resistance from law enforcement.

While it may not be traded on Wall Street any time soon, marijuana has become a booming cash crop.
