OC Weekly managing editor Nick Schou is too humble a guy to make much noise about this, but I sure as hell isn't: his latest book, The Weed Runners: Travels with the Outlaw Capitalists of America's Medical Marijuana Trade, is out TODAY.
BUY BUY BUY! And here's the link to buy–and do buy, won't you?
This is Nick's third book on the drug industry, following his well-received tomes on martyred reporter Gary Webb (which is being turned into a Jeremy Renner film as we speak) and Laguna Beach's hippie mafia. For Weed Runners, Nick expanded on his reporting for this infernal rag and followed the people who are getting rich in this murky era of state-allowed pot in the face of Obummer's no-pot-allowed-even-though-I-smoked-it administration.
We'll be running an excerpt of The Weed Runners in next week's issue, and Nick will have an OC signing soon. In the meanwhile, again: BUY BUY BUY!!!
