Decorated Bay Area news man John Geluardi released his first book, Cannabiz: The Explosive Rise of the Medical Marijuana Industry this October. A former staff writer for the SF Weekly and current East Bay Express contributor, Geluardi saw so much momentum building behind medical pot, he researched and reported a 200-page non-fiction paperback, released by Pollipoint Press of Sausalito, available nationwide and online. An essential primer to the rise of and challenges facing the sector, Cannabiz offers a front row seat to one of America’s historic new movements. Geluardi concludes his Q&A with Legalization Nation, picking up where he left off — on new fissures in the field, the fallout from Proposition 19’s failure, and the medical pot industry’s political forecast. Edited for length and clarity.
