10 top-rated states for medical marijuana
While it's still controversial, medical marijuana is edging toward normality. Forty states (and the District of Columbia) now have some form of law on the books that allow the drug to be used for a variety of ailments, and sales are soaring— reaching $5.4 billion in 2015.

And even in states where it's easier to come by, there are differences in how it's handled.
