Inside America's $2.7 Billion USD Marijuana Industry
A closer look at the “Green Rush.”
VICE recently sent a film crew to the city of Denver, Colorado (aka the weed capital of the U.S.) to document the inner workings of the growing marijuana industry.

VICE News meets some of the green investors to find out what’s hindering the marijuana industry from reaching its full potential.
