Publisher's Summary

Three early 2014 developments signal a new regulatory regime is on the way.

The US Department of Justice announced it will not interfere with marijuana retail sales as long as all state and Federal rules are followed and all taxes are paid.
The US Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network issued formal guidance to US banks on how to do business with marijuana firms.
The president of the United States mentioned marijuana and alcohol in the same sentence.

An enormous, quasi-dormant underground economy is awakening and large components are coming to the surface. Taylor West, deputy director of the 440-member National Cannabis Industry Association, said, "There is a whole canopy of products that goes beyond plants." He cites cannabis-infused foods and drinks, cannabis oils, butters, tinctures, and salves. New regulatory demands will spark other opportunities such as laboratories to test for impurities and software systems to track product from seed-to-sale. But make no mistake about it: Some investors in some of the publicly-held cannabis-connected companies detailed at will lose money.

What would have made How to Finance a Marijuana Business better?

I thought this book was going to give me more on how to finance my marijuana business, but it didn't. There were more stories about the cannabis industry than financing info. There was one chapter that discussed the 506c offering that was useful to me. In my opinion, everything else aside from that was fluff. At the end of the day, I guess that one bit of information is worthn my $5 dollars, but don't expect a drawn out plan on financing a marijuana business with this book.

Would you be willing to try another book from Douglas R Slain? Why or why not?
