Last year, $3.4 billion of legal marijuana was sold in the United States, according to Marijuana Business Daily’s Marijuana Business Factbook. Legal in Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and the District of Columbia, that's a lot of green for just a few states. The best way to give that figure some proper perspective is by comparing it with some of the country's best loved brands. Oreo is a good example.
