The current marijuana legislation in the United States varies by state, but on the federal level it’s still illegal
With all the western states unified in their marijuana legalisation efforts, the West Coast represents the centre of the marijuana trade in the United States. Marijuana flows outward from states like California, Oregon and Washington by car, plane and the US mail. With a lot of the bordering states like Nevada going legal it’s been a free- for- all. Entrepreneurs are getting rich off pot and the states that have legal weed are gaining all the benefits. Pot from Colorado travels into Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa. The same thing happens with Illinois, where it is legal medically. But the main supplier of pot for the United States is California.
California keeps all the good stuff for itself and sends most of the lesser grades and especially the outdoor bud to the East Coast, where California bud is in high demand. A pound that costs around $ 2,000 in California can go for up to $ 6,400 a pound, depending on the quality. But with the contradictions between state and federal law, small- time pot farmers in California and Colorado are still getting raided by federal law enforcement agents like the DEA, facing charges for selling marijuana out of the state that it is legal for them to sell in.
