I often get asked for advice about how to get rich on legal weed. Friends, family, strangers, amateur investors – everyone seems to believe that cannabis is some kind of magical industry where anyone can make millions overnight with little to no effort. After all, according to the folks over at Cannabis Benchmarks, the entire domestic marijuana market is worth over $40 billion a year. The only American crop worth more than that is corn. Since most state and local governments are trying to keep former drug dealers and criminals out of the business, it’s sort of like we’re throwing all that money in the air and seeing who has the wherewithal to elbow other people out of the way and catch it.
