The Marijuana Industry Today:

Legal cannabis sales are expected to grow to $2.57 billion in 2014, up from $1.53 billion in 2013, and projected to be worth $ 10.2 billion in five years, according to ArcView Group, a San Francisco investment network and market research firm focused on legal cannabis. The Legal Marijuana is among the fastest-growing markets in the United States, and it's growing at a rate poised to outpace the expansion of the global smartphone market, according to a new report by The Huffington Post.

Medical marijuana is currently legal in 20 states and the District of Columbia. This year Washington and Colorado will begin implementing laws that permit the sale of pot to all adults. Colorado alone is predicted to add $ 359 million to its existing market in 2014.

The marijuana industry's growth coincides with a widespread shift in the public's attitude toward the substance. A Gallup poll conducted found that for the first time in history, more than half of Americans think pot should be legal for both medical and recreational purposes. A CNN documentary that aired last summer explored marijuana's benefits for a mainstream audience. Individuals are increasingly using the plant's medicinal properties to treat symptoms even in children.

The report only examined the sale of cannabis itself, whether wholesale to retailers or directly to consumers. The markets for ancillary products, such as security equipment, grow tools, apps and paraphernalia has the potential to drive growth sales still further.

The federal government, however, has yet to catch up to this rapid evolution. Even in states that permit marijuana use, cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, and the Controlled Substance Act classifies marijuana as having no medical value. Federal raids against dispensaries in California over the past two years have shuttered hundreds of businesses and hindered the industry's growth. Attorney General Eric Holder's asserted that the Justice Department would not interfere with the implementation of adult use laws in Washington and Colorado. "Federal acceptance of marijuana is not going to happen in one fell swoop," he said. "It will happen incrementally, with important steps along the way."
