You can grow your own, for one, and that's only one point to be made by this. It'll be regulated and sold/taxed very similar to alcohol, so not only will tax dollars be wasted prosecuting non-violent criminals, but they'll generate a mountain of new tax dollars as well.
Hemp production will be a huge part of all this, too, which I think people have mentioned already.
