What Did Americans Spend More On Last Year - Cannabis Or Cookies?

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.

This Massachusetts Democrat - and 2020 presidential candidate - has a strong history of supporting veterans' access to medical marijuana. Over the years, Congressman Seth Moulton has acted as the primary sponsor on three cannabis-related bills—all of them focusing on improving veteran access to medical marijuana. As an Iraq War vet himself, Moulton has taken a strong stance in supporting the health and well-being of other veterans who continue to be barred from accessing medical marijuana - even in states where it's legal - because federal prohibition prevents Veterans Affairs from letting vets use medical cannabis.
