Money to Municipalities will do a lot to drive the legalization of marijuana.

The town of Coalinga, CA decided to bet it’s future on building a prison.  The town lost the bet and the prison sat unused.  Nothing was gained but debt to the community.  The city council decided to the sell the prison for over $4,000,000.00 to a company in Southern California that grows and produces medical marijuana.  Now a place that would have housed offenders of the various marijuana related criminal statutes will in fact be a home to the production of the medical marijuana products.  According to the article at the link below at least 100 jobs have already been created.  It appears that the ability of municipalities and states to generate cash from marijuana will do more to drive the move to legalize it than anything else.
