9780394738284: High culture: Marijuana in the lives of Americans

With Drug Crisis headlines and Drug War politics everywhere there has never been a better time to re-publish William Novak's High Culture, Marijuana in the Lives of Americans. The first authoritative book in its field, High Culture provided honest answers for millions who had the question: what is the truth about marijuana, and those who use it in America.

Interviewing more than 175 marijuana users, William Novak captured issues which others exploited and confused. These are professionals, poets, doctors, scientists, and students who are often as insightful as they are articulate in their descriptions of a drug used by millions of Americans. This is the only book written, not ghostwritten by William Novak. Permission was personally granted to create this anniversary edition.
