The Harold and Kumar State? While attracting little notice outside its borders, California has done more to push marijuana into the mainstream than anywhere else in America. Medical marijuana laws let doctors prescribe pot for just about anything, while a booming industry to service the new demand has popped up in storefronts across the state, complete with classes in proper growing techniques. The cannabis craze got a huge boost in February, when Attorney General Eric Holder promised not to harsh California's vibe by raiding pot stores, a major shift in federal drug policy. Some legislators have become so emboldened lately that they've proposed legalizing pot outright in order to boost tax revenue.
