It's no secret that the legal marijuana industry is booming in America, but a new chart released by Forbes puts that success in context of how it bests some established food and beverage brands.

According to the business magazine, cannabis sales in 2015 were five times higher than those of Oreo cookies - and while Dasani bottled water recorded impressive sales figures of $1.02-billion between May 2014 and 2015, legal marijuana sales were still about three times higher.

The profile of America's legal marijuana industry isn't expected to decrease anytime soon. Sales are expected to hit between $3.5- and $4.3-billion next year.
