North of the border, "Green" Bay might take on a new meaning.

It appears that maybe the priorities in Wisconsin when it comes to breaking the law, may be slightly off. The weight put on possession of marijuana is pretty heavy. While other states that have gone the way of legalizing have cashed in on the success, Wisconsin hides behind the cheddar curtain.

The following states have legalized on some level and are now rolling in another type of green.

  • California
  • Massachusetts
  • Maine
  • Nevada
  • Alaska
  • Oregon
  • Washington
  • Colorado

Colorado, the first to legalize pot for recreational use has collected $506 million since retail selling marijuana in 2014. Does anyone know of another state that is broke and could use a chunk of cash like this?
