Emily Post has gone to pot. As we enter the dawn of a new ´´post-prohibition´´ era, the stigma surrounding cannabis use is fading, and the conversation about what it means to get high is changing.

My wife Jenny and I moved to Denver, Colorado, three years ago from Knoxville, Tennessee, due to my job. But sadly four months after moving to this beautiful state, I lost my job. At first, we thought about moving back, but then we realized there was nothing that we left behind worth going back to. But I will admit it was very hard at first just to keep the roof over our head. Then Jenny suggested one day that we should start a cannabis baking business as we both enjoyed it as a hobby since we moved to Colorado. Since we didn´t have the funds to start an actual bakery, we just made a bunch of cookies and brownies one day and took them too many of the marijuana dispensaries and had them try some samples. Little did we know, in just three weeks we had enough orders from seven of these places where we had to work 12-14 hours a day to fulfill those orders. Fast forward to the present, we are still baking every day, but now we have hired three helpers and rented a commercial kitchen, business has been growing, and we finally found what we both enjoy doing. Jenny had this idea for a while now that we should put together a recipe book where we share some of our best cannabis recipes so everyone can enjoy the sweetest high time like we do here. So, here it is, our first try in writing such recipe book, and hopefully it will be something that can bring a big smile to everyone´s face (after you taste the sweetness of some of these great recipes). 1.

Higher Etiquette:A Guide to the World of Cannabis from Dispensaries to Dinner Parties Lizzie Post
So you´ve packed your bags, loaded your van, and are ready to join the ´´Green Rush´´ along with thousands of others looking to try their luck at opening and running successful marijuana dispensaries and businesses in states like Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Alaska and others. The business is big: According to CNBC, the marijuana industry in the U.S alone is worth an estimated $45 billion and it continues to grow. As of January 1, 2014, the state of Colorado became to the first have dispensaries where marijuana could be grown and sold legally. Because of this legalization, medical dispensaries in Colorado are now able to apply for special licenses that allow them to sell marijuana for medical and recreational use to the public. However, the costs of cannabis retail sales don´t come cheap: Marijuana dispensaries and businesses can expect to pay tens of thousands on operating licenses and application fees. Background checks and residency requirements for business owners are there to make sure that not anyone can start their own dispensary and sell marijuana. Today, marijuana dispensaries are not just in Colorado but have grown to other states like California, Alaska, Florida and the like. Marijuana dispensaries have the added advantage in that they don´t only have to sell weed to card-holding patients, but to recreational smokers as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Murphy.
