According to Forbes, legal marijuana sales in the US reached a record high in 2015, hitting $3.4 billion in sales last year. Marijuana is legal in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and the District of Columbia.

Putting this into perspective:

  • Oreo cookies sales totaled $711 million between April 2014 and April 2015. Weed sales were five times higher than that.
  • Dasani brand bottled water recorded sales of $1.02 billion between May 2014 and 2015 but legal marijuana sales were still about three times higher last year.

In 2016, America’s legal marijuana sales are expected to be even higher, somewhere in the region of $3.5 billion to $4.3 billion.
