Doug Fine’s third book, Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, is his most important volume to date. He traces the 2011 life of a single cannabis plant from cloning to harvest to ingestion by a medical marijuana user, who benefits enormously from the herb’s benign effects. Around this central story, he describes many aspects of what was at the time of writing, the biggest chink in the teetering walls of the U.S. drug war infrastructure: the cannabis industry in California’s Emerald Triangle. And he comments on the overall American war on cannabis use, cultivation, research and development. Packed within the book’s 324 pages is the most effective marshaling of logical arguments against the criminalization of this plant that may exist.
