In the spring of 2017, award-winning journalist Heather Cabot was surprised to learn that several women in her network were investing in cannabis companies. That realization led to the new book, "The New Chardonnay: The Unlikely Story of How Marijuana Went Mainstream."

The book is a timely and objective look at nothing less than an astonishing rebranding. To report the story, Cabot traveled all over the U.S. and Canada, managing to get exclusive interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of cannabis.

Heather Cabot is an award-winning journalist and serves on the alumni board of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism
