Pot, Inc
"Greg Campbell is just about the last person you'd suspect of growing pot in his basement. A few ill-fated experiences in college revealed he was a terrible stoner, and in the years since, he's not given the green stuff another thought. But his attitude changed when medical marijuana was legalized in his home state of Colorado in 2009. It set off a tsunami activity that was viewed by opposing camps as either Nirvana or the Apocalypse. Dispensaries popped up overnight, and as Greg watched the flurry, he thought: Why not me? Pot, Inc. chronicles Greg's venture into ganjapreneurealism. Along the way, he learned not only how to grow pot, but he also gained an invaluable education into the truth about marijuana's value as a medicine. Traveling from California's famed Humbolt County to the first-annual Medical Marijuana Education Expo to Oklahoma (where a man was sentenced to 93 years for growing marijuana to treat chronic arthritis), Greg unearths ignorance about pot's centuries-old therapeutic value (an ignorance the government is desperate to maintain) as well as his own personal connection to its medicinal value.

Fantastic book on a complex and controversial topic. A must-read for anyone interested in the push to legalize medical marijuana. It's so well-written that I read it all in one sitting (I'm a fast reader). The author starts out without a bias or firm opinion one way or the other, and takes the reader along on his search for the facts.
