Weed, pot, ganja, bud, grow, cannabis, grass – whatever term you prefer, in the United States, marijuana is an industry. Television reporter Trish Regan produced the two most popular documentaries in the history of the CNBC television network, Marijuana Inc. and Marijuana USA. Here she brings her remarkable expertise – and occasional TV-reporter glibness – to presenting the scale and scope of the business of growing, selling and reselling marijuana in the US. She meets farmers, medical marijuana dispensary owners, former smugglers, Drug Enforcement Agency agents, local cops, cancer patients and government representatives. Her breezy tone doesn’t always serve the material, but her anecdotal portrait of a multibillion-dollar industry remains compelling and revelatory. getAbstract recommends her inside knowledge to anyone with a historical, political, recreational or commercial interest in the topic.
