Cannabis, Conspiracies & Cashing Out
Tales of a former medical marijuana dispensary owner
About Brian's Memoir
This memoir blazes a trail of self-destruction and self-discovery while shining a spotlight on one major controversy – cannabis legalization. Stung serves as part commentary on the drug war, part conversation changer about cannabis’ healing properties and part deeply vulnerable story about an LGBTQ+ actor/waiter turned Medical Marijuana Dispensary owner in the gay Mecca of West Hollywood.
Bookended by sting operations with the LAPD and DEA, Stung chronicles my adventures with smuggling, jail, guns, celebrities, drag queens, casual sex, entrepreneurship and self-acceptance. Think Wolf of Wall Street meets The Birdcage, but for pot.

Endorsements for Stung
“Brian Hogan is a brilliant story-teller! In his breathtaking memoir, Stung, the reader is invited to board the runaway train that was Hogan’s life. Like an unsuspecting passenger caught off guard, I hung on for dear life, very often holding my breath in anticipation of what I would encounter, just around the bend. Hogan’s riveting journey propelled me into alternating fits of laughter, shock, awe, fear, and joy. Back at the station, I feel a twinge of sadness that the ride has ended but deeply satisfied, as well – fortunate to have taken the journey and relieved that everyone, including the engineer, arrived safely. In Stung, Hogan has woven a masterful tale of debauchery, betrayal, and the search for redemption. I encourage you to take the ride.”Dr. Allison BrownBest-selling Author of The Journey Within: A Christian’s Guide to 14 Non-traditional Spiritual Practices
