Desert Hot Springs, CA -

Desert Hot Springs will be one of several California cities profiled tonight on CNBC's "The Profit: Marijuana Millions,'' which examines the state's growing recreational marijuana market following the passage of Proposition 64.

"The Profit'' host Marcus Lemonis will take a closer look into how Desert Hot Springs came to embrace the marijuana industry and speak with city leaders who hope marijuana will provide a boon for the local economy, as well as growers and cultivators seeking a leg up on the booming market. The city opened Southern California's first marijuana cultivation facility last year.
