Marijuana has always been a hot commodity, albeit a taboo one, but regardless of whether the market is recreational, medical, grey or black, the product has never been a tough sell. Now more than ever cannabis is in the mainstream and public demand has spread from millennials to baby-boomers.

Marijuana Venture is the densest, monthly magazine dedicated to those brave individuals who are willing to walk along the bleeding edge of legalization and help normalize cannabis businesses.  Every issue is packed with useful articles that help business owners navigate through their specific recreational and medical markets.

The decision has earned the magazine both critical and public acclaim.
