THE 15~OUNCE POUND: BIG PHARMA’S PLAN TO PATENT POT

-THE LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA AND THE LOSS OF FREEDOM-

In the United States, cannabis is currently illegal under federal law; this book investigates how big pharmaceutical companies and others are looking at the end game of legality—controlled by them. It examines how the Amsterdam scene was transformed; how home growers have been manipulated into using inferior techniques; and how companies, with help from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and “big pharma, “are patenting cannabis strains for control and profit.

 

THE KING OF NEPAL

Life Before the Drug Wars

From the heydays of the 1960s counterculture’s early access to cheap, plentiful pot through the years of official intervention that foster a surging black market, this tale chronicles a former drug smuggler’s 50-year career in the marijuana trade, its evolution into a multibillion dollar business, and the characters he meets along the way.
