9780312195236: Reefer Madness: A History of Marijuana

Reefer Madness, a classic in the annals of hemp literature, is the popular social history of marijuana use in America. Beginning with the hemp farming if George Washington, author Larry "Ratso" Sloman traces the fascinating story of our nation's love-hate relationship with the resilient weed we know as marijuana.

Herein we find antiheroes such as Allen Ginsberg, Robert Mitchum (the first Hollywood actor busted for pot), Louis Armstrong (who smoked pot every day), the Beatles, and more rapscallions standing up for, supporting, smoking, and politicizing the bounties of marijuana.

With a new afterword by Michael Simmons, who has written for Rolling Stone, LA Weekly, and High Times, on the progress of the hemp movement and the importance of medical marijuana, Reefer Madness is a classic that goes on.

"Everything you always wanted to know about the history of grass in America--but were too stoned to ask." --Gene Schoenfeld, M.D. ("Dr. Hip"), author of Dear Dr. Hippocrates

"Ounce of ounce, Reefer Madness packs more highs than a pound of sinsemilla." --Frank Fioramonti, NORML board of directors

"The most objective, definitive book ever written on pot." --Pitt News
