You look around Seattle and at some of the people from the Silicon Valley, see the lifestyle of all those Dot-Com millionaires and you say to yourself, “If only.” If only I hadn’t been born too soon, or too late, or in a place where computer technology wasn’t accepted or appreciated. If only you had a chance to cash in on a big-money trend you too could be one of  “them”!

You can't turn back the clock but you can look to the future. It’s not too late to ride the next big boom!

According to Forbes, sales of newly legal-for-many marijuana topped $6.7 billion for North America in 2016.  And the growing green shows no sign of slowing down in the years ahead. The report predicts that North American sales of legal marijuana will reach $20.2 billion by 2021, which is a faster growth rate than even the dot-com boom of the early 2000s.

On Election Day, voters approved recreational marijuana measures in California, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana and Nevada. Medical marijuana gained approval in Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas, according to Mashable.
