The leading marijuana authority in the world--informed by hundreds of interviews and scores of confidential documents--lays bare the unvarnished truth about marijuana in America.

From the leading authority on marijuana- a man who has served as White House advisor on drugs to three different administrations and who NBC News once called "the prodigy of drug politics" - comes the remarkable and shocking expos about how 21st century pot--today's new and highly potent form of the drug--is on the rise, spreading rapidly across America by an industry intent on putting rising profits over public health.

Smokescreen: What the Marijuana Industry Doesn't Want You to Know examines the inside story behind the headlines, containing accounts from Sabet's time in the Obama administration to stunning revelations from whistleblowers speaking out for the first time. What it finds is how the marijuana industry is running rampant without proper oversight, leaving Americans' health seriously at risk.

Included are interviews with industry insiders who reveal the hidden dangers of a product they had once worshipped.

Also contained in these pages are insights from a major underground-market dealer who admits that legalization is hastening the growth of the illicit drug trade.

And more to the heart of the issue are the tragic stories of those who have suffered and died as a result of marijuana use, and in many cases, as a result of its mischaracterization. Readers will learn how power brokers worked behind the scenes to market marijuana as a miracle plant in order to help it gain widespread acceptance and to set the stage for the lucrative expansion of recreational pot.

The author of this compelling first-person narrative leading the national fight against the legalization of cannabis through his nonprofit, Smart Approaches to Marijuana (aka SAM) is Kevin Sabet. As a policy advisor to everyone from county health commissioners to Pope Francis, and a frequent public speaker on television, radio and through other media outlets, his analysis is consistently relied upon by those who recognize what's at stake as marijuana lobbyists downplay the risks of massive commercialization.

A book several years in the making, filled with vivid characters and informed by hundreds of interviews and scores of confidential documents, Sabet's Smokescreen lays bare the unvarnished truth about marijuana in America.
