The NIDA states on their website that “Marijuana is the Nation's most commonly used illicit drug. More than 94 million Americans (40 percent) age 12 and older have tried marijuana”. The marijuana market in the United States is definitely one of the most significant components of U.S. economy. According to the research done by the DEA, Marijuana’s production value showed that it is at least a $35,800,000,000 market. Marijuana trade as far as we know is not regulated by the government and as a result all they say that their predictions about the market but they may be far off. Some officials say it is very likely that the market may in reality be as prosperous as $100,000,000,000.
