Hosted by

Marijuana is still illegal under federal law, but polls show Colorado and Washington State are ready to decriminalize it — without a doctor's prescription -- in next month's elections. In Colorado, medical marijuana is already a $200 million industry that's created 4,000 jobs. If it's completely decriminalized, entrepreneurs are ready to make a killing.
