Tennessee places second in pot growth

The Los Angeles Times reports that marijuana is now the number one cash crop in America, a $35 billion dollar market. According to the story,”A report released today by a marijuana public policy analyst contends that the market value of pot produced in the U.S. exceeds $35 billion — far more than the crop value of such heartland staples as corn, soybeans and hay, which are the top three legal cash crops.”

California is the number one source, growing $13.8 billion worth of weed, and Tennessee comes in at number two with an estimated $4.7-billion cannabis harvest.
