(CNBC) Recreational marijuana is now legal in eight states, including California, where people are expected to spend about $6 billion a year on weed by 2020.

Alex Moore has invested millions in Honeydew Farms, which has nearly three acres of open-air pot plants and twenty-two greenhouses – all of it legal.
