Marijuana Inc: Inside America's Pot Industry


This link takes you to a page on CNBC's upcoming one hour documentary called "Marijuana, Inc." including a poll on decriminalization.

As of this moment, decriminalization of marijuana is ahead 97.2 - 2.8%

The show airs tonight and is a must see.

While it may not be traded on Wall Street any time soon, marijuana has become a booming cash crop. CNBC's Trish Regan goes behind the scenes to explore the inner workings of this secretive industry, focusing on Northern California's "Emerald Triangle," now the marijuana capital of the U.S. In this scenic pocket of America, the pot business, much of it legal under state law, now makes up as much as two-thirds of the local economy.

Marijuana reform has been getting some press lately.

They had a segment on the local news(FOX at that) in Mobile last night about Michigan's new med MJ law. Surprisingly, they presented it in a pretty good light. No LEOs predicting the downfall of civilization , etc.

Is America really about to wake up?

I do believe we are about to wake up. That's what happens when empty ideology meets a recession. The Great Depression was a major factor in ending alcohol prohibition.
