The High Road by Pete Young (90)

There is a lot of ink being spilled now about pot and how to grow the weed. Pete Young takes us through the steps of growing pot in different places during the final years of prohibition. It is a funny book as well as informative. There are parts of the book that will spark debate and further interest in pot.

This is a book about a pot grower’s journey from the black market to the stock market. Pot growing will become one of the most lucrative ways of making money in the future. There will be a high demand for pot and this book will probably show people how to invest in it.

Pete Young first grew cannabis on the roof of a friend’s apartment building in his hometown on Long Island, New York, when he was fifteen years old. A life long passion for marijuana cultivation flowered. Young moved to Southern Ontario in the late 1980s. He mastered advanced growing techniques, and began selling seeds out to the Great Canadian Hemporium which was soon at the center of one of the constitutional challenges to Cannabis laws.  The experience awakened Young to the non-recreational benefits of the plant and led to him confounding the medical marijuana movement in Ontario.

While growing his London Compassion Society into one of the biggest producers and distributors of illicit medical marijuana in Canada, Young overcame every obstacles a guerrilla grower faces, including crop theft, forest fire, police arrest, bankruptcy, home invasion, physical assault, and perhaps most intimidating of all, hungry male deer.

In 2015, Young stepped onto the right side of the law when he confounded and was named Master Grower at Indiva, a licensed producer of marijuana based on London Ontario.

This is an informative book that is filled with drama and humor.  It is a good read for people who are interested in marijuana growers and consumers.
