Recreational marijuana is now legal in California, where patients and enthusiasts alike can light up without a doctor’s note.

Once the market gets up and running, it could generate more in annual retail sales than the $3.5 to $4.3 billion that the entire marijuana industry is expected to post in 2016, according to the Marijuana Business Daily.

We visited Caliva, named the best dispensary in America by Business Insider, to see what shopping for pot could be like as the industry grows up.
