Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, if interested in legal marijuana. This book is about 33% memoir, 33% about starting up a new business, and 33% editorial on legalizing marijuana.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The author is candid in his views about the business. But there are tremendous gaps in his story: how it destroyed his marriage; how he managed hiring and security practices; how he conducted product development; how he promoted his business to customers, etc.
The good part of this book is that it is first peek into the brave new world of legal weed. Absolutely fascinating. The author doesn't paint in only gold tones, but also warns that this is like starting any other business. And that it is competitive. 50% of the dispensaries open in 2014 will be closed within 3 years.
On the "editorial" side of things, the author illustrates how MJ busts are now more like speeding tickets and less like SWAT exercises. His read of the trends in the industry are also worth noting.
Which scene was your favorite?
The High Times convention, when the author was baked for the entirety of the convention. He wrote like he had the time of his life. Now I want to go, too.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

My audible library is long. It's filled with books since I have a long commute for work. This is by far my favorite book! It speaks to me. It's everything I believe about marijuana. It's everything I believe about nature and being one with it. Chris talks about finding his bliss and finally being happy. That's what I'm looking for. I'm going to listen to it again.
