California has an extremely large multi million-dollar industry revolving around medical marijuana. The organizational structure of the medical marijuana business is one that many citizens would find familiar. The structure of producing, buying, selling, packing, and designating particular marijuana products to certain locations are all techniques in use in the multibillion-dollar marijuana industry. Between recreational and medical use, the marijuana industry continues to boom. So far, thirteen states currently allow medical marijuana prescriptions to patients with related illnesses, according to TIME magazine. However, the debate continues about whether cannabis use is helpful or is reaching a point of abuse. The question many find themselves asking is, does the benefit outweigh the negative opinion on medical marijuana reform.
