Cannabis farmers all over North America are bringing in a record bumper crop of super-fine flowers this month. On the photo sharing site Instagram, the phenomenon goes by the name #croptober, and it celebrates the annual harvest of full-sun outdoor marijuana in the world.
One in five Americans now lives in a legalization state, and 29 states plus Washington D.C. have medical marijuana laws. Those reforms have led to a resurgence of cannabis production never before seen in modern history.
As I detail in the introduction to my new book “Marijuana Harvest” by Ed Rosenthal and David Downs — cannabis is asserting or reasserting itself like never before. California alone is estimated to produce 13 million pounds of cannabis per year, and it is America’s number one domestic producer.
