Make no mistake: the US government’s hundred-year-old war on marijuana isn’t over. Some 20 million Americans have been arrested on marijuana charges so far. The American marijuana industry remains underground, where modern-day moonshiners who view themselves as tomorrow’s Johnnie Walkers continue to take immeasurable personal risks to fulfill America’s incessant demand for weed.
Drawing on unparalleled access to sources ranging from lawyers to cannabis club owners, from outlaw cultivators to industry entrepreneurs, The Weed Runners is both journalistic exposé and adventure story.
