The Top 5 Marijuana Web Sites

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Retail marijuana has left the underground and joined the World Wide Web.

As states push for limited legalization, Web developers are filling the gaps between seller and buyer. One benefit of the move by states to legalize such transactions is that marijuana buyers no longer have to seek out nefarious types at street corners and conduct their business in hushed tones. They can simply Internet to buy their pot.

Cannabis sites are taking their lead from other successful online consumer models, portraying their sites as the "Yelp" of pot or the "Priceline" of pot. Very catchy. Most sites are relatively new, having been created during the last five years, but their visitor numbers are growing. Plus, many of these sites have mobile apps, so cannabis consumers can get their information from their phones.

It's millennial marijuana. TheStreet has identified the top five cannabis websites for you, the newly emancipated consumer.

The Marijuana Policy Project site is the most informative Web site with regard to legal issues surrounding marijuana. Each state has its own update as to the status of legalization. The group's focus is changing marijuana laws so that cannabis is regulated like alcohol, make sure marijuana education is honest and that treatment for problem marijuana users is effective.

MPP was instrumental in the 2012 Colorado initiative to legalize recreational marijuana by providing the bulk of the funding, staff and expertise. Next on their agenda is Alaska and the group aims to have 10 more laws regulating marijuana like alcohol by 2017. This site is the "go to" source for the legal landscape on pot.
