About the book

From the leading authority on marijuana – a man who has served as a White House drug policy advisor to three different administrations and who NBC News once called “the prodigy of drug politics” – comes the remarkable and shocking exposé 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.

About the author


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.

Dubbed by NBC News as the “prodigy of drug politics,” author, consultant, advisor to three U.S. presidential administrations, and assistant professor, Kevin A. Sabet, Ph.D., has studied, researched, written about, and implemented drug policy for more than 20 years. He is currently the President and CEO of SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), a non-profit organization he founded with Congressman Patrick Kennedy and David Frum.
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.

About the event

Moderated by Kristina Sperkova, Movendi International’s President, this special event is designed to expose Big Marijuana and to examine the inside story behind the headlines about “pot legalization”.

Deep dive into the book

Dr Sabet will tell the untold story of Big Marijuana. He will share stories from people from all across the United States who are affected by the emerging cannabis industry. With a deep dive into his book, Dr Sabet brings into sharp focus the biggest take-over of public health by corporate interests since the advent of Big Tobacco.

We will hear accounts from Dr Sabet’s time in the Obama administration as well as stunning revelations from whistleblowers speaking out for the first time.

In discussing the book, Dr Sabet tells the story of how the marijuana industry is running rampant without proper oversight, leaving Americans’ health seriously at risk.

In-depth, interactive conversation

In the second part of the launch event, we will provide space for an in-depth and interactive conversation with Dr Sabet. We will discuss questions from the moderator and from the global audience.

A book several years in the making, filled with vivid characters and informed by hundreds of interviews and scores of confidential documents, Dr Sabet’s Smokescreen lays bare the unvarnished truth about marijuana in America and event participants will be able to discuss these issues.
