Marijuana has become relatively mainstream in American society today.

And on no day is pot bigger than on April 20, commonly referred to as “4/20.” ​For marijuana consumers, 4/20 is akin to Christmas, Thanksgiving, and the Fourth of July all rolled up into one big holiday.

Similar to how the holiday season is the biggest time for retail stores, 4/20 ushers in big profits for distributors of marijuana, both legal and illegal.

Just how big?
