Ok, we can all go home now and start growing I guess. According to an article in today’s Los Angeles Times:
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 responsible for more than a third of the cannabis harvest, with an estimated production of $13.8 billion that exceeds the value of the state’s grapes, vegetables and hay combined “” and marijuana is the top cash crop in a dozen states, the report states.
So, have it. Told you I wasn’t kidding.
