Way To Go CNBC!


First Class Medical Marijuana

Okay, now we know where CNBC stands on pot. I have to give a shout-out to their special Marijuana: By The Numbers.  It seems like that for a change the mainstream media decided to take the high road and just tell the facts.  Let’s take a quick look at some of the facts.

  1. If  legalized, marijuana would be a $40 billion dollar a year industry.  So , who is making that money now?
  2. 30 million Americans annually consume marijuana. Out of 308.8 million.  Meh.
  3. 14 Medical Marijuana states and De-criminalized in 11 states. Yes, that many.
  4. State with the most arrest for possession: Maryland – 1 per 10,000 residents.
  5. State with the largest amount seized: Texas – 1.25 million pounds – Mexican Brick
  6. State with the highest potential fine: Oklahoma – up to $10,000.
  7. Cheapest states to get busted in: Alaska and Georgia – no fine.
  8. State with the most medical patients: Oregon – almost 10% of their total population at 33k.

 It goes on and on, but you can get the drift. Stopping by their poll shows that most American are ready for Medical Marijuana (60%). But, only 33% favor legalization for personal use.
