Marijuanaland: Dispatches from an American War
HIGH TIMES Books is pleased to announce the publication of Marijuanaland: Dispatches From an American War, by longtime contributor Jonah Raskin. In the early eighties Raskin began working as a marijuana reporter in and around his native California, his beat encompassing pot politics, pot growers and potheads. For Marijuanaland, he returned to the field detailing the good, bad and ugly sides of cannabis culture throughout the famed Emerald Triangle. Follow his gonzo adventure as he speaks to the growers, dealers, dispensary owners, lawyers, smokers and cops that comprise the quasi-legal marijuana industry in Northern California. Like Hunter S. Thompson before him, Raskin does not shy away from participating in the stories he is supposed to be covering.
