Photo Essay: Prospectors seek fortune in legal pot

6 of 10

Daniel Curylo laughs while posing with some of the marijuana plants that he uses for marketing purposes in Seattle on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013. If legal pot is the Green Rush, Curylo has some unique credentials: He's been an actual prospector. He helped put himself through college working for a company that flew him into northern British Columbia and the Yukon with a map, a compass and a heavy backpack. He'd pan for gold and take soil samples. Another source of income in those days? Growing and selling marijuana with a few other political science majors. A former techie and ex-house flipper, Curylo, 41, says his background in "business development and taking risks" is perfect for the legal pot world. He has invested $400,000 so far. His goal? A cannabis business park northwest of Olympia that would feature his growing operation, Cascade Crops, as well as retail stores run by his mother, father and aunt. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
