Keeping with the tradition of "celebrating the counterculture," the 12th Cannabis Cup was dedicated to Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady, Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs. All four figures were inducted into the Counterculture Hall of Fame during the event.
These inductions were presided over by Carolyn Cassady, who was the great love of both Jack and Neal. She eventually married Neal, and they had a son, John Allen Cassady, who also attended the event.
Carolyn and John were assisted by Robert Anton Wilson, Paul Krassner and Brian Hassett. Many revealing stories were told about the founders of the "Beat Generation." Also revealed was their great love for cannabis, the sacrament of the counterculture.

Cannabis Rising Video: Highlands of Holland
Tour the Highlands of Holland with Ed Rosenthal
| In Amsterdam's famed hash coffeeshops
you can order coffee, tea, or...marijuana! Are the Dutch too permissive,
or have they found a peaceful, practical alternative to the war on drugs?
CANNABIS RISING is an insider's look at the rapidly growing, quasi-legal cannabis industry in the Netherlands and the issues swirling around it. Backed by a dynamic musical sound track, we follow Ed Rosenthal, a modern Johnny Appleseed of pot, as he takes the High Road to Holland, where you can buy marijuana in over one thousand hashcoffeeshops. You can roll a joint or fill a pipe, sit out in the open air, and get high. Or you can take your purchase home and enjoy it there. And NOT get busted!
The tour ranges from the greenhouses of Sensi Seed's Cannabis Castle; to Positronics, where you can get everything you need to grow your own marijuana; to lush fields where large-scale hemp production is being subsidized by the European Economic Union; to the hash coffeeshops and hemp boutiques that dot Amsterdam.
While maintaining a light hearted approach to a very serious subject, CANNABIS RISING explores the debate raging over medical marijuana; the effects of prohibition and America's failed War on Drugs; and the results of decriminalization on Dutch society. This innovative approach to drugs is discussed by sociologists and experts, marijuana tycoons, drug refugees from the US and elsewhere, and other observers and participants in the Dutch experiment.

by one of the most successful countercultural leaders in America, Cannabis
Spirituality contains 30 years of herbal wisdom condensed into seven concise
and accessible chapters.
Searching for enlightenment, turning on, avoiding abuse, and talking to your children about cannabis are among the essential elements covered. Stephen Gaskin was an instructor in creative writing at San Francisco State College when he began the Monday Night Class in 1967, a weekly discussion of politics, love and religion. After the class attracted over 1,500 people, Gaskin created the world's largest mobile hippie community and went on the road in a caravan of 50 school buses and 400 people in 1970. The caravan landed in Tennessee, where they created The Farm, the most successful countercultural community in America. Gaskin later founded Plenty International, a private peace corps that built low-budget housing and provided survival skills to Third World communities on four continents. Gaskin served a 1-3 year sentence for cannabis cultivation in 1974. He was the second person in the United States to take a case to the Supreme Court for religious use of cannabis. He is the author of ten previous books, including Monday Night Class, Mind At Play, and Haight Ashbury Flashbacks. He is currently working on an alternative health-care center and retirement-home center called Rocinante.

Meyers is a former L. A Times reporter and occasional contributor to Marijuananews. Anita Roddick of the Body Shop financed the film. The result -- as expected -- is a journalistically credible film and a real treat. As they say in Hollywood, it's a must-see for those in the movement, although I think it will definitely appeal to a mainstream audience. As such it should be used as tool by the movement, because, if this film is eventually seen by millions of people, or just the right people, it could hit hemp and marijuana prohibition like a bombshell.'
The Emperor Wears No Clothes

of Cannabis and the Conspiracy Against Marijuana
Jack Herer has updated his authoritative history of hemp's myriad uses and of the war on this plant, just as it has become high-profile news, with supporters such as Woody Harrelson and Willie Nelson. Herer thoroughly documents the petrochemical industry's plot to outlaw this renewable source of paperback, energy, food, textiles, and medicine.
The purpose of this book is to revive the authoritative historical, social and economic perspective needed to ensure comprehensive legal reforms, abolish cannabis hemp/ marijuana prohibition laws and save the earth's life systems. (NEW 1998 EDITION)

420reviews.com: "Ganja Tales is pure enjoyment . . . The ultimate in stoner wisdom . . . These stories are great."
Finally, someone has written short-story fiction about the millions of Americans for whom marijuana plays a part in their lives, whether large or small.
|These stories are easy to read and capture the imagination,
the characters reminding readers of similar people in their own lives:
brothers,sisters; boyfriends, girlfriends; aunts, uncles, friends and
so on. Even your dog.
A reader: "My favorite story is "Torched." It explores the craft of glass blowing, and we see Pugh's technical knowledge. He describes how the glass is positioned, worked with, and the need to keep the piece moving. "It's in the flame, and it's glowing like an aura or a rainbow, and the colors are shifting and changing, shimmering and twirling." The reader not only sees the process, but also feels the movement through the sentence structure. All this technical information is slipped in while we enjoy a story about a guy blinded to the outside world by his flame. Such layers of meaning exist in all of Pugh's stories. Ganja Tales is an entertaining escape that offers much more on closer inspection. I was pleasantly surprised, and highly recommend this book for any reader. It's not solely a marijuana book - it's about universal human experiences. In any story, you can replace marijuana with your drug of choice: cigarettes, money, power. The writing holds. Artistic sketches punctuate these sketches of life, too. Ganja Tales will please your simplest desires and satisfy your more discriminating tastes."

|| It's a pot book. It's supposed
to be esoteric.
Printed through Acid Test Productions in California (publisher of many pieces on the Grateful Dead), the book itself is oversized, 10"x10", 72pp, with both full color and black and white imagery, printed on high-end glossy paper. The production quality is top-notch. The book itself is a series of loosely related full page spreads, each with a different image and idea, all created for the stoner by the stoner. It's some pretty whacked stuff.
A reader: 'If the title doesn't grab you, then obviously you're not stoned enough because this volume is tailored to the higher state of mind. It's a compilation of photography, graphic design and stoner-speak that diddles the pot-saturated brain with random images that are somehow familiar to all of us. A pot smoker on a park bench lights up surreptitiously. A dog offers his full spectrum of facial expressions. There are loads of pot shots and textured close-ups of paraphernalia. There's poetry, too-the obscure doggerel that will make every pothead ponder the elusiveness of reality. Every page is different. Just like every high! Our sage advice: Get stoned and read Get Stoned and Read This Book.'

Grandpa's Marijuana Handbook (the movie)
| Marijuana is ideal for senior
citizens since they don't fly airliners or operate heavy equipment. Most
are retired and have the free time to sit around pleasantly stoned of
an afternoon. Nobody subjects them to random drug tests and fires 'em
for being stoned. What's more, marijuana is known to be good medicine
and you hardly ever find a senior citizen who doesn't have some sort of
health problem. Pot can cure almost everything except actual death. Even
if you do have some ailment pot can't cure, it'll make you forget you
have it. Arthritis pain in your knees? Smoke some high-octane marijuana
and you won't even know you have knees.
A thirty-year pot smoker, Grandpa knows the truth about marijuana. Watch this video and you'll know it, too. You'll learn why pot is good for you, how to get the stuff, how to roll Zen-like joints, how to outwit the cops, and a heck of a lot more! Smoke pot and...Stabilize your social life, Increase your libido, Improve your health, Raise your IQ
A viewer: 'This video is downright hilarious, and it offers a small insight into the world of a pothead as well! Grandpa offers a great conterbalance to DARE's anti-intoxicant brainwashing. It is a must-have for any pothead, any person who likes to laugh at them, and any person seeking an opinion from the 'pro-drug' side of the war on drugs.'

The Great Book of Hemp
The Complete Guide to the Commercial, Medicinal and Psychotropic Uses of the World's Most Extraordinary Plant
by Rowan Robinson & Robert A. Nelson
sativa has been called the world's most versatile plant. Materials made
from hemp fiber have been discovered in tombs dating back to before 7000
BC. During the Middle Ages hemp was used to treat fevers, insomnia, and
Columbus's ships had sails of hemp, and during colonial times it was universally grown because its strong fibers made superior ropes, sails, hardcover, and paperback. In fact, hemp was used for money in most of the Americas from 1631 until the early 1800s, and the original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written on hemp paperback. As a food, the oil from hemp seeds has the highest percentage of essential fatty acids and the lowest percentage of saturated fats. This illustrated, easy-to-read guide covers all aspects of hemp:
The history of its cultivation worldwide; Its role as a source of renewable energy and as an alternative for paperback manufacturing and fossil fuels; Its versatility as a fiber; Its many nutritional and medicinal uses; Examines the physiological and psychological effects of marijuana use in recreation and therapy. A comprehensive resource section includes information on organizations involved in legalizing hemp, product suppliers, and an annotated bibliography.
"The Great Book of Hemp brings together a vast amount of information on all aspects of this remarkable plant in an illustrated, entertaining, easily accessible format. Readers will learn the history of hemp cultivation worldwide and its role as a source of renewable energy and as a raw material for paperback manufacturing. Lost in the political discussions about marijuana usage is hemp's versatility as a fiber and its many nutritional and medicinal uses. The Great Book of Hemp provides a comprehensive resource section with information on organizations involved in legalizing hemp, product suppliers, and an annotated bibliography."

The Comeback of the World's Most Promising Plant
| by John W. Roulac
What happened to hemp? Within these pages, John Roulac thoroughly examines this question as society looks to solutions for the toxic hangover from the last half-century's fossil fuel binge. The question has never been more relevant. Worldwide demand for hemp products is mushrooming, spawning a new breed of entrepreneurs who are discovering a vital marketplace. Twenty-three of these entrepreneurs are profiled here. This volume makes use of history, business and agricultural analysis and common sense in making its case. 90 illustrations.
A reader: 'This book is an eye opener for those who appreciate the potential for every thing old to be new again. It outlines a compelling case for re-examining the value of hemp as an agricultural renewable resource. The book's tone is very "straight" and specifically eschews the mixing advocacy of herb and fiber. Along with a thorough overview history of hemp use, cultivation, and current purposes, the book offers a product directory, strong bibliography, and access to its web site.'

We're goin' across the heartland and we're gonna reach out to people all over this country and say, 'Herb is for healing! Herb is for peace!'
'Ask Ed' Rosenthal, the guru of ganja, spoke in a very emotional tone: 'It's cheaper for a ghetto kid to buy a vial of crack than it is to buy a joint. This is what Reagan and Bush's War on Drugs has done.'

All in color! Natural, versatile, attractive, and easy-to-work, hemp has become the fiber of choice for people interested in casual chic.
|With some inexpensive articles, and the ability
to knot, tie, braid, and weave, you can produce beautiful jewelry to complement
any outfit. The retro chic of the 1970s has once again made macramé hemp
jewelry popular. But far from looking dated, the designs in this book
offer a fresh take on a traditional craft, giving new life to an old fiber
art with a few dozen easy projects. With simple knotting, braiding, and
cord-weaving techniques; several yards of hemp cord; and some interesting
beads, you can create necklaces, bracelets, earrings, eyeglass chains,
and other accessories. Straightforward directions, helpful diagrams, and
color photos of all the finished pieces offer such choices as the Ocean
Waves Choker, Millefiori Twist Necklace, Touch of Nature Anklet, Cat Toy
Watch Holder (a wonderfully dangly necklace that sports a watch for a
pendant), African Amulet, or Carnival Ride key ring. The items also make
nice gifts, especially for retro-captivated but hard-to-shop-for teenagers.
'This book is excellent. It is all I needed to start making hemp necklaces. The first chapter tells you all the supplies you need as well as a little history about hemp. The next chapter talks about all the different knots (such as the square knot, half knot, wrap knot, chinese crown and berry knot - to name a couple) used in making hemp necklaces complete with black and white, easy to understand illustrations on making these knots. The remainder of the book contains over 30 different projects in color ranging from chokers, bracelets, anklets, earrings, keyrings and even an amulet bag. Overall a great book to own.'

The most thorough evaluation of the benefits & dangers of cannabis
Lester Grinspoon,MD, editor
|A reader: 'Dr. Grinspoon examines - and thoroughly debunks
- many of the common misconceptions about marijuana. The Chemistry and
Pharmacology chapter is rather heavy going, but it can be ignored with
little loss by non-pharmacologists. I thoght the book was quite well done
and useful in understanding the role, past and present, of marijuana in
A reader: 'The most extraordinary and wonderful thing about this book is that the essay by Mr. X has been positively attributed to the luminant Carl Sagan by Grinspoon himself. Sagan discusses his experiences with mj, and provides persuasive and convincing accounts of his experiences. Fantastic.'

Marihuana the Burning Bush of Moses
Mysticism and Cannabis Experience
by Robert Thorne
The first book ever to explain a tested method to achieve the mystical experience of Inner Light with the CORRECT use of cannabis.
|Marihuana the Burning Bush of Moses, Mysticism
and Cannabis Experience explores the relationship between hallucinogenic
(and other drug) substances and the founding of religion in the ancient
world. It is concerned specifically with mysticism and the mystical experience
upon which religions are built. If one is to understand religion at all
one must have a better understanding of the original mystical experiences
of it's founders. The Bible like other holy books from the ancient world
contain secret knowledge below the 'plot of the narrative' or surface
level of the stories related. This book reveals these hidden secrets like
no other has ever done before.
Its been right in front of us all along. There are a whole range of experiences available with cannabis that were unavailable to those not initiated into the higher grades of the ancient mystery religions. It was only there you would be taught the secret psychedelic ingredient in the Elixir of Immortality, which plant became the mind manifesting Eucharist, and which herbs were included in the holy incense. Most importantly, you would learn the correct way they must be used in order to produce the awesome experience of Inner Light spoken of by the ancient prophets. The Mystery Religions were only following an even older way of the Shaman. All the grand motifs of the world's oldest religions such as: death and resurrection, pilgrimage to a holy place, Eucharist sacrifice, baptism, rebirth, Inner Light and many others are related to aspects of hallucinogenic experience (cannabis included).

A History of Marijuana Prohibition in the United States
by Richard J. Bonnie (Preface), Charles H. Whitebread, Dana L. Farnsworth
A reader: 'This is the most comprehensive look at marijuana and drug prohibition available! It was written by members of Nixons very own committee delegated to the task of researching marijuana, it's history, effects, and whether the drug policy at the time was a sensible one. They found that it was not, and suggested a serious rethinking of marijuana laws. However, instead of listening to his own research committee Nixon decided to start the now infamous war on drugs! Though this book only follows prohibition up to the early 70s, as that's when it was published, it contains the essential history of marijuana prohibition which most people are not familiar with. It discusses the general atmosphere of prohibition that hovered over the early 20th century, and how that affected marijuanas legal status. It also discusses the mutation by law makers of the word 'narcotic,' the inconsistent stances of Drug Czar Anslinger, and the horribly racist tactics used to criminalize marijuana (As well as the horribly racist reasons!)! This book is a must read for EveryOne!

The Patients' Fight for Medical Pot
by Alice M. O'Leary and Robert C. Randall
was 24 when told that he'd be blinded by severe glaucoma before he turned
Four years later, he became the first American to gain access to marijuana for medical purposes; two decades later, he found the drug would also support his fight against AIDS. He and his co-author O'Leary's saga began in 1973 when Randall discovered, while smoking marijuana just for fun, that the glaucoma-related tri-colored rings obscuring his vision had disappeared. A search of the medical literature revealed the suggestion that marijuana could indeed return dangerously high intraocular pressures (caused by glaucoma) to normal levels, thereby relieving visual disturbances. Randall duly made the rounds of agencies and organizations, looking for lawyers and doctors to take on the government drug regulators. In the process, he became a key player in the fight for medical marijuana.

Testimony from Federal and State Court Proceedings on Marijuana's Medical Use
by R.C. Randall (Editor)
| Testimony and
affidavits of patients and doctors from hearings before the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Administration (DEA) and state courts. Personalized accounts
of medical marijuana use provide an excellent source of information on
this controversial topic.
The Journal of Myofascial Therapy, October 1994: 'In the United States, the issue of the legalization of marijuana is emotionally loaded for many people. Some get upset even at the recommendation that marijuana be legalized for medicinal use. Different factions could argue the question ad infinitum. But as a physician who practiced at one time in a country where authorities tolerantly looked the other way when marijuana was used medicinally, I must take the side of those favoring legalization for treatment of chronic pain, muscle spasms and some other conditions. ... I believe that education is one way to overcome the societal forces that continue to deprive those whose pain and suffering would yield to marijuana. For this reason, I'm grateful to R.C. Randall and Galen Press.'

The Life and Times of the World's Grooviest Plant
by Saul Rubin, Bill Bridges (Photographer)
Robert Scheer, Los Angeles Times: 'Let me offer praise for Offbeat Marijuana. Finally, a book on the decriminalizing side of the marijuana debate that doesn't take itself too seriously--sort of a giggling high.'
From Booklist: 'Rubin's entertaining and provocative cultural history of pot recounts Robert Mitchum's famous 1948 reefer contretemps, significantly notes medical marijuana advocate Robert Randall (coauthor of Marijuana Rx ), and includes an earnest essay exploring industrial and other nonrecreational uses of the evil weed. A special place in the text, rather like one in Hades, is reserved for Harry J. Anslinger, 'the government official most responsible for creating anti-marijuana hysteria in America.''
A reader: 'This book has just about everything you'd ever want to know about marijuana, and it's written in a "head-friendly" prose style that makes it an excellent diversion whilst indulging. The graphics, many quite lurid, harken back to a simpler (read: stupider) time that is thankfully past. Congratulations to Santa Monica Press for having the balls to print this outstanding tome!'

Original Unofficial Joint Smoking Rules
by Simon Worman
Whereas most 'pot books' concentrate on the social, legal, or medical issues surrounding marijuana use, this is simply a hilarious look at 75 pot-smoking rules of etiquette. Anyone who has ever smoked marijuana will relate to something in this book, and smoking neophytes will learn which faux pas they must avoid at all costs. The rules cover virtually every aspect of burning a blunt, from Rule #7: “If you want to smoke a joint, you should be able to roll one” to Rule #20: “If you’re in the middle and you have to keep passing the joint back and forth, you are allowed to double toke the joint.” Primarily a book of pot humor, this guide makes a subtle political statement for the legalization of marijuana and for the decriminalization of hemp manufacturing.
Simon Worman is a hemp activist and marijuana aficionado who has been dubbed the “Emily Post of Pot” by High Times magazine. He lives in Lawrence, Kansas.

The book emphasizes 'the core philisophy on which the Rastafari base their eating habits and cuisine' in that, "You are what you eat".

314 pages 6th edition (October 2000)
'This is from the author, so take the stars with a grain of salt. The main story the book tells is of California's halting and inconsistent efforts to implement Prop. 215, the 1996 initiative that allows patients with a recommendation from a licensed physician to possess, use and cultivate cannabis or marijuana.
|Some local jurisdictions
moved quickly to set up patient registration systems in cooperation with
local medical marijuana activists, while other local DAs opposed the initiative
so strongly that they brought prosecutions designed to show it couldn't
possibly work. As an editorial writer and columnist for the Orange County
Register for 20 years I followed the controversy from the inception, attending
several trials and interviewing most of the principals, from two California
Attorneys General to patients all over the state. Eventually I had too
much information for newspaper articles so I wrote the book. It also includes
chapters on the socio-political forces that led to the passage of 215,
on the scientific evidence for therapeutic uses of cannabis, on the history
of the medical marijuana movement from the 1970s, on initiatives in other
states and disputes among activists, and on why opposition is so fierce.
A chapter analyzes the federal scheduling system for controlled substances,
another sets up the U.S. Supreme Court medical marijuana case (I attended
the oral arguments March 28), and another features pioneers on the frontiers
of medicinal marijuana.
Among those kind enough to provide endorsements for the book are John Stossel, Milton Friedman, former San Jose police chief Joe McNamara, Chapman University president James Doti, Dr. Tod Mikuriya of Berkeley, Cato Institute vice president David Boaz, etc.'
