The book describes 20 women from all walks of life who made a career in the Cannabis business in Colorado. All legal of course. What impressed me was the fact that they did not need Harvard MBA or some other lofty background to be successful. Many were regular folks who used hard work to get ahead. These stories should serve as a source of ideas for women in other States once they legalize.
I was impressed learning the various ways women engaged with Cannabis. I also learned that we as a society are uninformed about Marijuana. One example of a mother who's son had tens of epileptic seizures per day and used Cannabis to bring it down made me think that lumping Cannabis with illegal drugs is wrong. In another example where a brother of a woman described in this book got 10 years for possession of 4.5 oz, made me realize that our society is ignorant about Cannabis and is over reacting.
The main message of the book is that women can develop very profitable and perfectly legal careers and provide leadership in the new frontier which is the Cannabis industry. The book doesn't tell you everything as that would make it a huge and unreadable volume. It mentions many organizations, legal terms and various components (and opportunities) of the business which can start you on a the right Google search. For example, I had no idea that testing of Cannabis plants is a profitable business. You will learn about other opportunities.
Based on my other readings and this book, the legalization of Marijuana in each State is like putting a Silicon Valley type opportunities in each State and that women can play.
I was most impressed with the straightforward storytelling that authors Picillo and Devine utilize. There is NO sentimentality or fluff. The writing is clean and honest and gives each of these powerhouse women a chance to share their voice.
