The Medical Marijuana Guidebook By David Downs Is Selling Briskly


Hi, guys. Long time no chat, but it's because I've been pretty busy. As of today, you can be the first to get a signed copy of my new book The Medical Marijuana Guidebook, which is for sale direct at www.usmmj.org as well as through Amazon and my publisher Whitman. Here's what some key folks are saying about the book:

"The medical marijuana landscape in the US can be extremely difficult to navigate. The Medical Marijuana Guidebook is essential for those who want to maximize the benefits of the marijuana plant. David Downs provides a comprehensive look at the plant, its use and the laws that surround it." —Amanda Reiman PhD MSW | Manager, Marijuana Law and Policy, Drug Policy Alliance

"David Downs does a great job of summarizing the most useful things to know about medical cannabis, both for the cannabis-experienced, as well as cannabis-naive patient."—Frank H. Lucido MD, Berkeley, California

"An excellent introductory manual for those seeking to navigate the dynamic, complex world of cannabis therapeutics."  —Dale Deutsch, PhD

"David Downs does a great job of summarizing the most useful things to know about medical cannabis, both for the cannabis-experienced, as well as cannabis-naive patient." —David Hua, founder of Y-Combinator-backed Meadow medical cannabis delivery, GetMeadow.com

"The Medical Marijuana Guidebook is the most comprehensive, reliable, unique, step-by-step roadmap to everything you need to know about the most valuable plant on Earth including how to get and stay safe & legal. No journalist on the cannabis beat is better informed than David Downs."—Stephen DeAngelo, founder of Harborside Health Center dispensary in Oakland, star of "Weed Wars", author of The Cannabis Manifesto

Marijuana, Luxury, and a New Column for 7X7


I'm starting to track the intersection of cannabis and Bay Area luxury/power/money in a new column for 7X7 Magazine.

We're still working on the name for it. First it was "High Society". Currently it's "Cannabis Insider". I'm not in love with either. But we're definitely keeping the pseudonym: Herb Caine.

Read: "Cannabis Insider: Pitching Pot in the Twitter Building", in 7X7.
