MJ’s Book Look — “Weed: Grow It, Cook It”

Here's a new book that belongs on your shelf -- Weed:  Grow It, Cook It."   It's hard to imagine a short book could do justice to a topic as wide ranging as cannabis cultivation.

Ever seen a florist shop?  Know what you didn't see?  The industry that delivered those flowers to the merchant.  Someone who decided which flowers to plant; someone to plant and raise the blooms; someone to harvest those stems; someone to package them, another to deliver them.  And, in the end, someone to ring up your sale and say "Thanks for your purchase."  That same production line will one day, soon, exist for cannabis and...
