Billion Dollar Dimebag: An Insider’s Account of America’s Legalish Cannabis Industry


Experience the Green Rush through the eyes of Jackson D. Tilley—the sober twenty-something who climbed the ladder at a small vape company while it grew into the nation’s leading cannabis distributor.

“Smart, funny, and fast-paced, this debut from Jackson Tilley is both a deeply felt memoir and a crash-course in the Green Rush.” —Jonathan Small, Editor-in-Chief, Green Entrepreneur

“A deeply personal and thoughtful journey through the madness and joy of legal cannabis. Mixing his years of business experience at the cutting edge of cannabis with a battle to overcome addiction, Tilley allows the readers to personally experience the cannabis revolution. Tilley’s prose explores both the history of prohibition and his front- row experience inside the burgeoning legal cannabis industry. For historians wondering how pot went mainstream, Billion Dollar Dimebag is a valuable contribution.” —Jonathan Franklin, Author 438 Days: An Extraordinary True Story of Survival at Sea

“When Tilley turns the magnifying glass on himself and his chosen profession of American marijuana, he reveals the unique, coming-of-age idiosyncrasies of a brand-new industry as it transcends the Reefer Madness-reputation it never deserved and transitions into a major player in mainstream agriculture, traditional science and modern retailing. Billion Dollar Dimebag is a compelling look inward at one of the modern world’s most complex and dynamic corporate collisions: cannabis and technology.” —Ricardo Baca, Founder of Grasslands: A Journalism-Minded Agency and The Cannabist
