The Green Machine: 5 Big Possibilities for Big Marijuana

Image Credit: Mca-sf.org
Jamen Shively, a former Microsoft man and current CEO of Seattle-based Diego Pellicer, recently announced some big plans for big marijuana. With pot already legal for recreational use in two states and medical consumption (nothing quite like a prescription brownie) in 16 others, it seems like only a matter of time before the drug is as common and legal as tobacco or alcohol. Or at least that’s what Jamen Shively is betting on.

The Seattle-area businessman’s plan includes the Image Credit: investment of $100 million over the next three years in the expanding "social marijuana" market, and the hopes of eventually forming a national chain of marijuana stores. If all goes according to plan for Shively, the growth of legal marijuana into a national industry could have some far-reaching implications.
