Abstract:

"Drawing on unparalleled access to sources ranging from doctors and lawyers to lobbyists, cannabis club owners, outlaw cultivators, and industry entrepreneurs, The Weed Runners is both journalistic expose and adventure story. The book's title refers to those who run the vast network fueling the ongoing nationwide explosion of medical marijuana. Focusing on an incredibly dynamic three-year period from 2009 to 2012, this fast-moving and exciting portrait examines the lives of the people involved in today's marijuana trade and recent developments in the federal war on medical marijuana. Unlike other books on the topic, this narrative gives readers a first-hand account on America's quasi-legal medical marijuana trade"--

"A behind-the-scenes look at the quasi-legal business of medical marijuana and the people who risk their liberty to push the limits of this grand experiment"--
