Big weed : an entrepreneur's high-stakes adventures in the budding legal marijuana business by Christian Hageseth( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 576 libraries worldwide
Marijuana legalization is the hottest story in the US today. 22 states have authorized sales in some form. Denver has more legal marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks franchises. And like the early days of gourmet coffee chains, the rules and players are being established on the fly. Christian Hageseth is one face of the revolution -- an entrepreneur and father of three who worked in the white-collar professional world for 20 years before opening his first dispensary. The founder and chairman of Green Man Cannabis, the fastest-growing legalized marijuana company in the country, he's the perfect tour guide through the wild frontier, where police hardly know what laws to enforce, or parents what to tell their kids. He paints a colorful picture not only of how he got into the business, but of the big interests that are eager to do the same -- namely Philip Morris, Monsanto and a who's who of Big Pharma. He predicts a future where the marijuana market splits in two: the high-end, artisanal market, supplied by individual growers and small farms, and the mass market, covered by the cigarette giants and anyone bold enough to compete with them

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"What can chess masters teach us about how humans become experts? Why can't race car drivers explain decisions they've made behind the wheel? What does predicting the winner of a soccer match say about our ability to make the right choice? When we talk about experts, we typically have bought into the idea that they have all the answers. Now, in this groundbreaking book, Gordon Rugg exposes the surprising ways in which all people tend to make the same sorts of mistakes, regardless of what field they are in, how smart they are, or even their level of expertise. Focusing on why and how we make decisions, Rugg offers insight into what motivates us, how we fail to find the answers we are looking for, how we can learn to ask the essential questions, and more. . . . Drawing on his personal odyssey in the field of human expertise, Rugg makes astute and entertaining conclusions about how and why we inevitably fail, and explains how to make better mistakes, work backward, and reengineer the ways we pursue success." -- Dust jacket
