Twenty-eight is the number of states that have legalized pot for medical or recreational use. Ninety-four million is the number of people in the U.S. who've admitted to using pot at least once. Zero is the number of sports teams that have legalized marijuana, even though it's been found to relieve pain and improve athletic recovery.
But that doesn't mean people of status aren't putting their money where their mouth—or, rather, pot—is. Here are some notable celebs and athletes investing in the industry.
