Marijuana is becoming legal in California (16 photos)

After years of hiding medical marijuana finally becomes legal in California. The new policy of tolerance for "medical grass," which holds the Obama administration means that its number will increase.
In February, the new US Attorney General Eric Holder said the US Department of Justice joined the campaign of President Barack Obama, which resulted in federal agents will no longer pursue the dealer that distributes medical marijuana within the law.

Since then, small traders have begun to expand their businesses, and large businesses, avoid investments in marijuana, have begun to invest in this area. (Justin Maxon for The Wall Street Journal)



Now, some use traditional business practices, such as political lobbying and consolidation of supply chains. Others seek capital or offer their investment in the supply of marijuana. (Justin Maxon for The Wall Street Journal)



"Green light" for the legalization of medical marijuana has allowed people like Bill Shofner, who used to be a car dealer, enter into a new business. Yet there is a problem. Recently, Mr. Shofner (pictured above) specifically drove past the cluster of police cars to personally make sure that they are not planning a raid on his charitable pharmacy that sells marijuana, Orange County, California.
