What will the marijuana industry look like as legalization spreads? Nanette Nanette Lepore Womens Stella PumpPleaser Womens MOON-708FLM C B SandalsWill corporations sweep in and create Big Marijuana, flooding the market with mass-produced weed? Or will marijuana agriculture stay true to its roots in family farming, and reflect a sustainable, local, and artisanal ethic? In Craft Weed, Ryan Stoa argues that the future of the marijuana industry should be powered by small farms—that its model should be more craft beer than Anheuser-Busch.

To make his case for craft weed, Stoa interviews veteran and novice marijuana growers, politicians, Demonia Unisex SNEEKER-107 Platform Low Top Creeper Sneaker Black1TO9 Womens Boots Closed-Toe Zip Low-Heel Embroidered Warm Lining Rubber Water_Resistant Road Manmade Charms Round-Toe Urethane Boots MNS02604activists, and investors. He provides a history of marijuana farming and its post-hippie resurgence in the United States. He reports on the amazing adaptability of the cannabis plant and its genetic gifts, the legalization movement, regulatory efforts, the tradeoffs of indoor versus outdoor farms, and the environmental impacts of marijuana agriculture. To protect and promote small farmers and their communities, Stoa proposes a Marijuana Appellation system, modeled after the wine industry, which would provide a certified designation of origin to local crops.Skechers Performance Women's Go Walk 3 Reboot Walking Slip-On shoesGUESS Womens Kico Heeled Sandal A sustainable, local, and artisanal farming model is not an inevitable future for the marijuana industry, but Craft Weed makes clear that marijuana legalization has the potential to revitalize rural communities and the American family farm.

Most books about the modern marijuana industry are often torn between celebrating legalization's seeming inevitability and sharpening fears about its potential effects. Ryan Stoa's Craft Weed offers something new: a smart, historically accurate, and valuable middle ground that advocates for the benefits of small-scale “craft” cannabis farming as a means of rebuilding America's agricultural heritage and preventing the rise of marijuana monopolies. By tracing the history of how cannabis has long been produced in the United States, Stoa argues against misguided fears of “Big Marijuana” and gives actionable, useful advice for the benefits of developing a local, sustainable industry. Well-written and thoroughly researched, Craft Weed is must-read for anyone who wants the best for this emerging industry's future.

Craft Weed is an insightful investigation into the future of cannabis farming by a gifted and thoughtful writer. A great read!

It is not often that a new agricultural product enters the legal market.Superga Womens 2750 EMBWOOLW SneakerPleaser Womens SKY-309LG B RG Sandals Ryan Stoa offers an insightful overview of how that came to be and how the marijuana market could avoid the ecological and social problems associated with industrial agriculture. It is a hopeful story that should serve as a call to action for those who want products that are sustainably produced and socially just.

Stoa's new work takes a novel look at multiple facets of the marijuana farm and the politics that surround it.Callisto Womens Malin Wedge PumpASICS Women's Gel-Encourage LE Tennis shoes As they get caught up in the narrative, readers will learn a ton about the plant, the machinations of government, and parallels with the wine industry. Compelling arguments unfold for why we should support small, family farms in our efforts to preserve our country's communities and ecology while maintaining efficient agricultural markets. I sincerely hope that all levels of government follow his recommendations before it's too late.
