As countries around the world change the legal status of cannabis, more and more business ventures have sprouted within this burgeoning industry. The economic benefits of the legalized industry are immense for all the parties involved, including government coffers.
However, human nature being as it is, a legalized cannabis market and its investment opportunities can sometimes lead to excessive greed and resulting fraud.
In her new financial thriller, author Sabine Frisch delves into the world of smooth-talking Connor Beauregard in a fast-paced work of fiction, The Cannabis Preacher – Sermon One.
One of the main reasons for removing cannabis from the list of controlled substances was that governments could erase, or minimize, the criminality around the production and consumption of such a widely used product. So far it all sounds very good, but many issues still persist in an industry with many grey areas, overregulation, and the greediness of all concerned, including over-taxation.
The Cannabis Preacher – Sermon One is part of four planned books about Beauregard’s business startup, Perfect Cannabis. Within the book series, readers will follow the birth, setup, growth, and hubris of the business and the thought-provoking characters developed by Frisch.
Connor Beauregard learned a trick or two about raising money from his preacher father, who used his fiery sermons to raise funds without any qualms or regrets.
As Connor sets about building the most prominent cannabis operation in the country, he soon faces a roller coaster ride. First, readers meet his leading business partner Rafael. Then follow the introduction of Kayla Montecito, his soon-to-be girlfriend, and, finally, the mysterious Al. Soon the business is facing challenges that make Connor Beauregard more determined than ever to achieve his goals – no matter what.
When reading the first part of this financial thriller, one cannot resist thinking that the charismatic Connor could easily be thought of as the Wolf of Weed Street as he enters the world of cannabis, living the high life, and the ensuing fall from grace.
