Read in January, 1978

My sister and I prefer the older edition. Whether one has plans to grow marijuana or not, the inclusion of this material is key to understanding the ambience of the period. Marijuana was taken for granted. A bit of grass in the bubbly pipe, baked in cookies, or rolled in natural paper was our generation's version of cocktails to relax. It was a given anytime people got together for any reason. The scent wafted through certain streets of my old town at the time I bought this book; even the cops smoked it. Today, you might still want it for medicinal purposes. I believe that marijuana will be fully legalized in the future, for a number of reasons.
