An Exploration of the Known and Potential Effects of Marijuana Legalization in the United States

A new video by Wired‘s Data Attack explores the known–and the potential–cultural, financial, and health effects of cannabis legalization. The film describes how the end of marijuana prohibition in some states has hurt profits for cartels while increasing tax revenue, and shares the projection that legal weed could grow to a $40 billion-per-year industry in the United States–if, of course, prohibition were lifted nationwide.
