According to the Marijuana Business Daily, this year, the retail sales of both medical and recreational cannabis in the United States are expected to hit between $5 billion and $6 billion.

But it might get as high as $17 billion by 2021, thanks to the rapid growth of the recreational market, legalization in more states and further development in existing medical marijuana programs, which will no doubt spur much of that growth.
