Synopsis:
Offbeat Marijuana: The Life and Times of the World's Grooviest Plant both a serious and lighthearted look at the historical, legal, political, medicinal and social aspects of what has been called the world's most versatile plant. Chronicling the history of marijuana--from it's use by the Chinese in 3,000 B.C.E. to battle malaria, to the burgeoning American hemp industry of the 17th and 18th centuries, to the politically motivated demonization of the 1930s, to the U.S. government's directive to farmers to grow "Hemp for Victory" during World War II, to its enduring presence in late-20th century popular culture--Offbeat Marijuana offers a guided tour of the marijuana universe for friend and foe alike. Colorful personalities abound, from treasury official Harry Anslinger to hipster Bernia Brightman. The slang, the celebrities, the accessories, the music and art--it's all here. Hundreds of photos and illustrations bring this unique book to life.

Review:
"The bottom-line blue noses on publishers row wouldn't touch a title like this with a ten-foot pole!"--Jeffrey Goldman, publisher
