Craft Weed with Ryan Stoa
Thursday, April 18 at 7 p.m., we welcome Ryan Stoa to talk about his new book from MIT Press, Craft Weed: Family Farming and the Future of the Marijuana Industry.
What will the marijuana industry look like as legalization spreads? Will corporations sweep in and create Big Marijuana, flooding the market with mass-produced weed? Or will marijuana agriculture stay true to its roots in family farming, and reflect a sustainable, local, and artisanal ethic? In Craft Weed, Ryan Stoa argues that the future of the marijuana industry should be powered by small farms—that its model should be more craft beer than Anheuser-Busch.
Ryan Stoa is Associate Professor of Law at Concordia University School of Law in Boise, Idaho.
