As legally allowed medical marijuana becomes more widespread, it is no surprise that many are realizing there is legal money to be made off of this traditionally illegal cash crop. Even Illinois has adapted medical marijuana laws, and soon it will be legal to buy weed in Chicago as long as you have a prescription.

Monsanto was also recently named the world’s “Most Evil Corporation” by the NaturalNews website. Monsanto garnered 51% of the votes with second runner up, British Petrolium, or BP getting only 9% of votes
Monsanto already distributes medical marijuana grown without RNAi, and has sold genetically altered marijuana for over a decade. Monsanto also contributed funds to state-run initiatives to legalize marijuana for medical use.
