The Ultimate Guide To Marijuana

Remember when the stigma behind weed was on par with shooting crystal meth and committing first-degree murder? Needless to say, it's still pretty odd to see the laws around marijuana becoming more and more lax by the day.

People are no longer afraid of pot and actually celebrate the miracle herb by baking it into chocolate, turning it into eyewear, and writing books about the jolly green intoxicant. Enter the newest release by the people behind High TimesMarijuana for Everybody!: The DEFINITIVE GUIDE to Getting High, Feeling Good, and Having Fun

This definitive guide is for everyone: from the giggly first-time puffer to that famous rapper who's made a name for himself with his undying love for Mary Jane. (What's that guy's name again? Afro-dude? Man?) Anyway, this book has everything, including the history of cannabis, the laws surrounding the infamous drug, and a slang dictionary. 

The High Times editors present a multi-faceted, in-depth look at weed and add a heaping dose of sticky-icky-heady history, context, recipes, and FAQs to take away the negative stigma and add the juicy component of—gasp—education. This book is pretty much the exact opposite of what you learned in school—i.e., smoking pot will make you dumb, sterile, angry, and prone to Ebola. 

Marijuana for Everybody! is toted as "part manifesto, part party invitation" and offers the elusive combination of entertainment within education, which is absolutely vital with a drug like marijuana. Edutainment that leads to getting high? Shut up and take my money!
