What will the marijuana industry look like as legalization spreads? Ryka Womens Devo Xt Mid Cross TrainerPATRIZIA Womens Ranchera Fabric Closed Toe LoafersWill 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, T-JULY Women Fashion Gladiator Genuine Leather Square Heel Sandals Open Toe Thick Heel shoesT-JULY Women's Canvas shoes Casual shoes Platform Wedge shoes High Heel Fashion Sneakers Black White Loafers Spring Autumnactivists, 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.T-JULY Women Fashion Wedge Sneakers Female Casual Embroidered Hidden Heel Platform Lace Up Casual shoesT-JULY Women Platform Chains Knee-high Boots Winter Thick Crust Round Toe Fashion Boots Ladies Casual Sexy Knight Boots 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.T-JULY Women's Denim Autumn Winter Plus Size Ankle Boots Fashion Lace Up Round Toe Square Heels shoesT-JULY Women's Fashion Genuine Leather Snow Boots Winter Warm Boots shoes 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.Women Leather Flat Woolen Inside Warm Soft Comfy and Breathable Moccasins Driving shoesPyramid Womens Path Bowling 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.
