Hennessy Performance has been known for a while now of turning fast cars in to speed demons. They've worked on everything from a 2014 Corvette Stingray, to the SRT Viper. Their newest project is a bit of a departure as they go for brute strength. Their Hennessey Velociraptor SUV ($156K - $175K) started off as a F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew pickup. Once Hennessy got their hands on it they replaced the pickup bed with a covered rear section, which was padded, carpeted and made to appear absolutely stock. You then have your choice of seating and cargo options. You can get the Velociraptor with a stock engine or add a supercharger, intercooler, and upgraded fuel injectors for a whopping 600 horses and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds. The result is a beast of a SUV.

With cannabis now legal in many US states we can begin to calculate the cost savings and its impact. As some expected the states with legal weed are seeing prices steadily drop to an all time low. This map shows how much weed costs in each state ($NEWS) and from it you can see just how the cannabis landscape is shaping up. Still surprisingly the first state to legalise weed isn't one of the lowest, but it's still a saving not to be ignored.
