Millions of pounds of California marijuana ending up in other states

California produced at least 13.5 million pounds of marijuana last year — five times more than the 2.5 million pounds it consumed.

Where did all that extra pot go?

As California prepares to allow cannabis sale for recreational use, that surplus has become a problem.
