Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
Once again I am joined by the writer Greg Campbell. He’s written a new book, Pot, Inc. Inside Medical Marijuana, America’s Most Outlaw Industry. We’ll get Mr. Campbell to tell us what the book’s about, and how he involved himself in the debate over marijuana in the United States. In this part of the world, by that I mean Vancouver, we’re pretty liberal when it comes to pot, so it’ll be interesting to see what his research uncovered. Not only did he grow pot in his basement, in this book he also looks at the culture of DIY ganjapreneurialism, and the history over marijuana prohibition. Greg Campbell was last on for the book he co-authored, Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History, which was a bestseller and a hell of a read. He’s also authored Blood Diamonds, and The Road to Kosovo. He’s won awards for his journalism which has appeared in many publications. The book is published by Sterling. The website for more is www.bygregcampbell.com. He joins me from his home in Fort Collins, Colorado. Please welcome back to the Planta: On the Line program, Greg Campbell; Mr. Campbell, good morning.
