INSTRUCTIONS: Completing this paper requires you to do “library” research beyond the text book and class lectures. You must use multiple sources to address the questions below. No fewer than seven sources should be cited. Using the same sources over and over again amounts to plagiarism even if you properly cite the source using APA formatting which is required. The papers must be, at least, five double-spaced pages, exclusive of the cover page and reference list. If you have not used APA style referencing before, GOOGLE how to do so. It is a requirement for the paper, not optional. You must include a reference page that lists all of the sources that you used to complete the paper. Wikepedia is NOT an acceptable source to cite. Be sure that you cover all the questions below in reporting your research. Be sure that the information that you use is up to date. Your paper should be written in narrative form not as bullet points. Use sub-headings as needed. DO NOT include an abstract. See also the attached “Grading TIPS for Research Papers”.

How much money is being made and by whom (i.e. race, class, & gender)?
11. Considering what you have discovered in your research, how do you think the dual legal

federal level) where MJ possession, use, and distribution continues to be illegal. Explain
