Make no mistake! The US government’s 100-year-old war on marijuana isn’t over. Some 20 million Americans have been arrested on marijuana charges, so far.

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 expose and an adventure story.
