My Authored Books

IRS §280E and its Application to the Cannabis Industry

The book, “IRS §280E and Its Application to the Cannabis Industry” can save tens of thousands of dollars in taxes annually. Included are six business cases complete with balance sheets, income statements, and sample tax returns demonstrating where to find savings.

The Marijuana Business and Operations Guide

This 340 page book will provide you with everything you need to get started and to grow your cannabis dispensary business.

The Marijuana Business Licensing Guide

Whether applying for a dispensary license, cultivation license, extraction license, cultivation license or ANY kind of cannabis license — here is where you will find the most complete and perfect answers to application questions. Over 400 of the most common questions on applications throughout the United States are addressed. Why spend tens of thousands of dollars for consultants and lawyers, when all the answers are right here in the book?

The author of the book, Robert Carp, is a former High Tech Entrepreneur of the Year, a practicing lawyer with a concentration on helping medical and recreational cannabis growers and retailer, and is also a Harvard trained government scientist.


Growing cannabis can be a challenge, but growing it profitably is even more difficult. The Marijuana Business Operations Guide was written to take most of the guess work out of designing, building, and operating both a dispensary and a cultivation center. The industry is currently flooded with “consultants”, lawyers, accountants and fringe players who charge a fortune and deliver knowledge that may help you put together an operation, but in the end will end up costing you much more because of what they left out. Can they operate a cannabis business profitably? This book will allow you to assemble all the parts and all of the personnel necessary to create a profitable, dynamic enterprise, and then sell it, obtain additional capital, or take it public.


If you’re not happy with the book, simply send it back and I will refund your money without a hassle. Or, if you’ve got questions, just email me and I’ll get back to you within a day. If I don’t know the answer, I promise you I know someone who does!
