Description

"A gem" of a collection of marijuana stories, poems and artwork by Joyce Carol Oates, Lee Child, Linda Yablonsky, Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan, and others (New York Journal of Books). It's known by many names: Pot. Grass. Hash. Hemp. Reefer. Ganja. Dope. Weed. Smoke. Spliff. Mary Jane. Tea. Blunt. And it has played just as many parts in the mind of the public, from Reefer Madness to medical marijuana. Here is a collection of new works as diverse and provocative as the drug itself. From Joyce Carol Oates's "High" to Dean Haspiel's "Cannibal Sativa"; from Maggie Estep's "Zombie Hookers of Hudson" to Philip Spitzer's "Tips for the Pot-Smoking Traveler," this collection explores the drug in its many forms and varietals. In prose, pictures, stories, and poems, you can delve into the folklore and the facts, rich cultural history, and dramas personal, political, spiritual, and legal. Like Dave Chappelle says: "Hey, hey, hey. Smoke weed every day."
