Marijuana – Biggest USA Cash Crop

You may have heard the news stories the last couple of days that “U.S. growers produce nearly $35 billion worth of marijuana annually” with “five U.S. states produc[ing] more than $1 billion worth of marijuana apiece: California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Hawaii and Washington”.

“By comparison, the United States produced an average of nearly $23.3 billion worth of corn annually from 2003 to 2005, $17.6 billion worth of soybeans, $12.2 billion worth of hay, nearly $11.1 billion worth of vegetables and $7.4 billion worth of wheat, the report said.”

I doubt much of the USA production is exported, which means that there of lots of marijuana consumers in the country.

Today there is a report that Mexican military marijuana eradication forces have encountered a “new hybrid marijuana plant that can be cultivated year-round and cannot be killed with pesticides.”

    How about baked goods?

  2. Safety First,

    How nice to hear from you. I imagine your city is adorned for Christmas.

    Well baked goods are of course the safer means, sparing the lungs the noxious fumes. Another alternative, of which I was reading today, is an alcohol infusion.

    Enjoy the holidays and may the coming new year bring prosperity.

    Give my best to the baker.
