California begins legal sales of recreational marijuana today. The state has issued dozens of licenses for weed retailers. Businesses also need local permits and some cities haven't issued permits yet, including Los Angeles, the biggest city in California.
Recreational marijuana is expected to grow to a seven-billion dollar a year market by 2020. Medical marijuana has been legal in California for years and generated nearly 850-million dollars in revenue in 2016 alone.
