Submission + - Industrial Marijuana Farming Approved in Oakland (msn.com) 1

Trintech writes:

The city of Oakland, California on Tuesday legalized large-scale marijuana cultivation for medical use and will issue up to four permits for "industrial" cultivation starting next year. The move by the San Francisco Bay Area city aims to bring medical marijuana cultivation into the open and allow the city to profit by taxing those who grow it. The resolution passed the city council easily after a nearly four-hour debate that pitted small-scale "garden" growers against advocates of a bigger, industrial system that would become a "Silicon Valley" of pot.

and yes, you read that right. MSNBC just compared computer chip fabrication to pot cultivation. The High Times has also written about this as well
