Weed: 420 Things You Didn’t Know or Remember about Cannabis: By I.M. Stoned By Rene Navarro

Dec 22, 2009

This book is written by twelve people, clearly apostles to the god formerly known as mota. The concept is pretty straightforward: 420 (get it?) short paragraphs about weed, including what famous people smoke weed, the best movies to watch while stoned, and famous baked writers. It’s well-written and entertaining, but proved impossible for me to take in for more than a few pages at a time, especially when wasted. This book claims weed can’t give you a hangover, which is simply not true. Horrific headaches after an all night session are common. It’s just these authors’ bad luck that this is my ninth day straight as an arrow, and this book just seems to be less entertaining with each passing day. I used to read it while baked and laugh. Now I notice things that upset me. For example, on page fifty they side with the pigs over a grower whose whole crop was destroyed before being found to be in compliance with the Compassionate Use Act of 1996: not cool! –Rene Navarro (adamsmedia.com)
