Brave New Weed by Joe Dolce

Brave New Weed

Brave New Weed

As its title implies, Joe Dolce delves into the “brave new world” of marijuana, going both into the future as well as into the past to take a closer look at the many aspects of this controversial plant. He discusses the legal, political, cultural, medical, and social areas of marijuana -- all of which are still extremely relevant today.

Perhaps most importantly, Dolce looks at the why. Why do we think of weed in a certain way, when it used to be an everyday medicine for many ailments? When and why did things change? He travels the globe to get to the bottom of it and points us in the direction of where he expects the marijuana question to go.

According to Herer, the petrochemical industry is intentionally preventing hemp from being used for medicine, textiles, food, energy, and paper. It’s a renewable source, making it the ultimate threat to this industry. Could it be that it’s all a conspiracy working against hemp?

Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution by Doug Fine

Too High to Fail

Too High to Fail

Despite the fact that the economy may be in rough shape, there is one potential savior that could turn things around - marijuana. The black market has a marijuana industry of an estimated $35.8 billion, meaning its legalization could win tons and tons of American tax dollars to give our economy a springboard into prosperity.

This is a humorous (but data-based and objective) explanation of how marijuana could turn our economy around. It could change the shape of our culture and politics, especially if you look at a county like

Mendocino County, where the marijuana industry makes up 80% of the economy. While the country might not make it to 80% of the economy, it shows the enormous potential for the legalization of this plant to really turn things around. If you have your hopes set on legalization finally allowing you to become a ganjapreneur, this is your book.
