MJ’s Book Look: Idiot’s Guide to Growing Marijuana

The Idiot’s Guide to Growing Marijuana, by Kevin Oliver and Chadd McKeen, is the book you want to read once you decide — even if it’s “someday” —  to grow your own.  As the pace of re-legalization picks up more and more people will cross that threshold.  This book is a good first read for a novice grower (or intend-to-grower).
