Description

The cannabis industry is not exactly new. It borrows a little from the alcohol, tobacco, advertising, pharmaceutical, and food industries. As new models emerge that relate to one or more of these industries, business opportunities for the everyday person keep popping up. Today, legal Cannabis represents a $50 Billion Dollar a year industry!
Big Cannabis is coming. The race is on. Whoever can get there first should have the best chance at winning.
Legal Cannabis represents a $50 Billion Dollar a year industry. The market will eventually be dominated by a handful of brands and they will occupy the large advertising spaces and employ glossy spokespeople -- they will be hard to ignore. So where does the ambitious enthusiast belong in this industry?
If you have enough money to market your products to major-brand status, you probably do not need this book, however, successfully tapping into a multi billion-dollar industry is possible. A well-organized, moderately-funded husband-wife or two-person team should be able to start something small that can grow into something big - hopefully just like your favorite plant!
