    Pot. Grass. Hash. Hemp. Reefer. Ganja. Dope. Weed. Smoke. Spliff. Mary Jane. Tea. Blunt. The popular drug. The disputed drug. The everyman and -woman drug. Medical marijuana. Recreational pot. For the young, the old, and everyone in between. The drug that doesn’t have you pawning the family silver along with your mother for the next toke. It’s the easy drug. No shooting up and losing your job. Finally, a book that will address the drug (or, as Arnold Schwarzenegger said, “That is not a drug. It is a leaf.”) in all its diversity and drama, its folklore and fact, in prose, poems, pictures, and more. Like Dave Chappelle says: “Hey, hey, hey. Smoke weed every day.”

Editorial Reviews

  • “Joyce Carol Oates is in a rare class of her own, but she’s just of the right age to have experienced the ’60s and its many forms of annihilating reality. So, too, are some of the other contributors to this collection, including Lee Child and the always enjoyable Raymond Mungo, who has traveled far, from the Haight of yore to the medicinal marijuana boutiques of today.”?—Kirkus Reviews
