Current and dispassionate. Seems up-to-date. I'm certain more books will be written down the line, but this one can be looked upon as a biopsy of the marijuana scene in 2011. My only criticism of the quality of writing is that reading this book has kept me up past my bedtime.

I found this book to be a valuable introduction to cannabis and being written by Trish from Marijuana Inc helped to tie together what I saw on TV with her research applied to this book. I will be sharing this book with others now that I finished reading it!

some of the book is just dialogue from her documentary marijuana inc. it had some parts that went over the business aspect of the industry, but i felt like it could of been more business oriented. dont get the wrong impression the book was good, im just an economic student so i wanted to see more numbers.

the book was good however for someone trying to learn the basics of the semi legal marijuana industry
